Henry VI Part 2


A dark power is rising over England, and a king must battle against the odds to unite a land on course for war.

Rated R. Unbridled regal shenanigans

"More double dealing in two hours than a whole decade's worth of Republican and Democrat party conventions."
- Anon


aka "The First Part of the Contention of the Two Famous Houses of York and Lancaster"

Written between 1590 and 1591

First Published in 1594
