Henry VI concedes that the House of York shall inherit the crown after his death, angering his wife who fights for the House of Lancaster. Fathers kill sons, sons kill fathers. The House of York prevails and Edward IV is crowned, unaware that his brother Richard, Duke of Gloucester, is already plotting his downfall.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision. Please email our Customer Care team to find out more about your chosen show.
