About the event

What happens when a country's politicians treat the justice system like their own private roulette table?


Stairwell Theater is proud to present Henry VI, Part 2, Shakespeare's rarely performed prophecy about the insidious slide into civil war. An electro-pop nightmare, Stairwell's experimental production shows what happens when a group of elite oligarchs behave very, very badly indeed. Featuring the rise and fall of Queen Margaret, the murder of the Good Duke Humphrey, the insurrection of Jack Cade, and the rebellion of the Duke of York, this rarely performed masterwork will make you laugh, cry, and chop some heads with a crack team of downtown artists as they take you on a phantasmagoric boat ride to hell.


With undertones of the insurrection on January 6, 2021, and our own urgent political struggles, maverick Shakespeare director Sam Gibbs brings 1447 England to the stage as a warning to those who would stand idly by in the face of injustice.
