    'Sin will pluck on sin'

    King Henry VI is dead - stabbed in the tower by Richard of Gloucester - and the bloody Wars of the Roses are finally at an end. Edward IV is on the throne, his new queen Elizabeth at his side and flanked by his younger brothers, reunited in their victory. The wounds of civil war, however, are slow to heal and will begin to bleed again as one man keeps his eye fixed firmly on the crown...

    A creative team led by director Tom Cornford and designer Lucy Osborne join a student company to create a vivid re-working of the young Shakespeare's first hit. This classic tale of terror and the pursuit of power launched the career of David Garrick and imprinted Laurence Olivier on our imagination. As the Marlowe Society approaches its centenary, come and see the next generation of theatre-makers bring it screaming into a new century.
