The War of the Roses

California Shakespeare Theater/Berkeley

From William Shakespeare's Henry VI and Richard III. A fast-paced, far-ranging, vividly theatrical depiction of two powerful families--the Houses of Lancaster and York--and their decades-long fight for the English throne.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman has to say about The War of the Roses :

A conflation of “Richard III” (played by Danny Scheie) and the “Henry VI” trilogy, this drama traces the lengthy battle between the house of York and the house of Lancaster as they fought for dominance. “When weak leadership and civil strife run rampant, what are the consequences?” asks Cal Shakes, unnervingly. Artistic director Eric Ting is at the helm, Stacy Ross and Aldo Billingslea are in the cast.
