Wars of the Roses Part 1 & Part 2 close up of rose

The Wars of the Roses:
Part 1 & Part 2

William Shakespeare

Experience the thrill of rebellion, the brutality of battle, the tension of intrigue and ambition without boundaries.

More about the play  Join the RSC 

For The Wars of the Roses, we will transform the ground floor of the Swan Theatre with new grandstand seating and 100 standing arena spaces, immersing you in the action. Stand and move amongst the actors; hear every heartbeat, see every bead of sweat and feel part of every battle. Seating in Galleries 1 and 2 will remain unchanged. See the full seating plan and our visualisation of the auditorium.
