Event description
Queen Margaret

About this event

If Henry does not lead, these nobles cannot follow, and so they will feast on their own appetites.I must stitch the tapestry of this kingdom together with knots I pray will hold.”

Inspired by Shakespeare's tetralogy (Henry VI, part I, II & III, Richard III), Jeanie O'Hare uses original Shakespearean text alongside new dialogue to retell the Wars of the Roses through the eyes of Margaret of Anjou. Hungry for power and angered by the weakness of their king, the nobles of Henry VI's court plot and scheme against each other. As Henry wavers and the factions split, Queen Margaret is determined to hold on to power and protect the crown for the sake of her son.

All audience members will be required to adhere to all current COVID government guidelines, at time of performance, including but not limited to social distancing and mask wearing

Venue is wheelchair accessible

Downpour Theatre Company is a performing arts production company based in the South Gloucestershire and Bristol area, performing across the south west.

Originally founded in 2016, to stage a one off Shakespeare production, our first show was an open air performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream , performed in the beautiful Victorian Walled Garden at Old Down Country Park. In the wake of the unexpected success of our debut production, Downpour has gone from strength to strength, and we now perform up to 4 shows per year, including storytelling events for children, bespoke Christmas pantomimes, and of course plenty of our first loves, Shakespeare and open air theatre.
