Henry VI Rebellion

74 adults from Blackpool, Bradford, Canterbury, Cornwall, Norwich and Nottingham, will appear alongside the professional cast in Henry VI: Rebellion. They will play the roles of working people who take part in the rebellion led by the character of Jack Cade against Henry VI, and townsfolk in a scene where Henry VI is out hunting.

Initially they will rehearse in their local theatres before taking to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre stage from April, with each group appearing in around four performances.
