Send between the red rose and the white. A thousand souls to death and deadly night'
After the death of Henry V, the French revolt and threaten to reclaim their country from English rule. But while the young king Henry VI journeys to Paris to reaffirm his rule and his armies battle Joan of Arc abroad, discontent is also breeding at home between the two ancient houses of York and Lancaster. Filled with pageantry and spectacle, the opening play in Shakespeare's tetralogy dealing with the Wars of the Roses shows the origins of a conflict that caused bloodshed over England.
