Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

Shakespeare’s account of the long, disputatious reign of Henry VI led to his mesmerising Richard Crookback. This course asks how experiments in a new genre taught him how to fit history on stage and to build a theatrical role actors still love to play, and audiences love to hate.
