  • Achoimre

    Richard II’s story is the loss of innocence. A king since he was a child, when he finds his throne under threat he must consider how a king can become a man and ask himself how such a man can live. Henry IV’s story is the price of arrogance. Having plucked the crown from his cousin’s head, he divides houses, enrages nobility and jeopardises the loyalty of his own supporters until he has only his family to turn to. Henry V’s story is a coming-of-age. He squanders his youth with scoundrels and mistresses, but he must face up to his fate as heir to the throne and mend his ways in order to win the hearts and minds of the nobility and unite his country.
