The design incorporated an onstage 80’s-style boombox that played sound effects and synced up with the offstage soundscape.

henry vi - part one

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Laura Welsh Berg

The world whirls out of control in Shakespeare’s thrilling tale of France's Joan of Arc, the English warrior Talbot and the young King Henry. From the funeral of Henry V that opens the play to Joan's fiery execution, Shakespeare's brilliant first installment of the Wars of the Roses is riveting storytelling that never lets up.

Scored with the brilliant music of Magic Sword, Henry VI had all the grandeur of Shakespeare mixed with the action and sounds of an 80s video game.
