Dickheads!

Dickheads! was a new play created at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London combining Shakespeare’s Richard III and Henry VI part iii. We are taken through the story of the rise and fall of the York family in a dirty, ill-fit world where it’s winner take all regardless of the cost.

Queen Margaret is the wife of Henry Vi and a ruthless general in war. She leads the Lancasters into battle after King Henry promises the Yorks the crown and personally tortures and kills the leader of the Yorks after killing his youngest son. The Yorks take revenge on her and after watching her own son be killed and having the throne taken form her she descends into madness- prophesying the fall of Richard.
