Don't miss your chance to watch Henry VI Part One, Henry VI: Rebellion and Wars of the Roses online, available to buy now until 30 September 2022.

Experience the thrill of rebellion, the brutality of battle, and ambition without boundaries. Buy your ticket here to watch Shakespeare’s epic trilogy about one of the most turbulent periods in English history.

The three productions now available on demand are:

  • Henry VI Part One: Open Rehearsal Project. Filmed as a rehearsal run through during the Covid 19 pandemic, Part One introduces us to a young and reclusive Henry, who is proclaimed King of England after the death of his father, Henry V. 
  • Henry VI: Rebellion. As fighting and division in the corridors of power continues, and Henry’s hold on the English throne wavers, ordinary men and women start to speak out. But as the people rise in protest, who is behind their rebellion?
  • Wars of the Roses. In this thrilling climax, the tussle for the English crown escalates to the battlefield as the families of Lancaster and York drench their brutal conflict in sweat and blood.
