Get ready to experience William Shakespeare’s Henry VI trilogy in a whole new way. Starting this Wednesday, January 25, Seattle Shakespeare will present their epic two-part adaptation, Bring Down the House. Rosa Joshi and Kate Wisniewski adapted the production with Joshi in the director’s seat. Seattle Shakespeare says this about the show:
From chaos springs opportunity. No one knows this better than the scheming noble families in the houses of York and Lancaster. The power struggle for the crown of England thunders onstage with an all-female ensemble. From battlefield betrayals to court deceptions, the collapse of a kingdom gets re-imagined in this epic premiere adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry VI trilogy.
Produced in partnership with upstart crow collective.
