Convinced of his divine right to rule, King Richard II governs recklessly and selfishly, creating many powerful enemies including his cousin, Henry Bolingbroke who leads a rebellion against him that will shake England for generations to come. Amidst the turmoil of this political division, four young cousins fear the growing divide within their family. Will the bonds of their childhood be strong enough to prevent the family being torn apart? Who can they trust? And who is the rightful King?
This is the origin story of The Wars of the Roses –the bloodiest period in England’s Medieval history and the original ‘Game of Thrones’.
Terri Brabon’s adaptation, The Blood of Kings sweeps effortlessly through 4 of Shakespeare’s History plays and includes some of his most famous rogues & rebels including Hotspur, Kate, Prince Hal, Mistress Quickly and the infamous Falstaff.
