Uneasy Lies the Head that Wears a Crown

“Uneasy Lies the Head that Wears a Crown”

Shakespeare’s eight English history plays are conflated into one epic storytelling feast charting a hundred years of turmoil. Told in a fast-moving fluid style with battles, coronations, murders and intrigue, featuring the Wars of the Roses and some unforgettable characters – heroic warrior king Henry V, lovable rogues Falstaff and Harry Hotspur, and the ultimate scheming villain, Richard III.
