...VI Part 1 On 3 March 1592 the manager-owner of the Rose theatre , Philip Henslowe , recorded a ‘new’ performance of ‘Harry the VI’ in his diary.

(There is no early edition to help with the question of dating, since 1 Henry VI did not appear in print until the appearance of the First Folio in 1623 .) The box-office receipts of £3 16 s. 8 d. set a record that season, and the play was performed another fifteen times by Lord...

The second title is probably editorial and comes from the more familiar text of the play, longer by about a third, published in the 1623 First Folio . Like the titles of the other plays about Henry’s reign, the title 2 Henry VI was given when the Folio presented all...

...production, The Wars of the Roses , for the English Shakespeare Company , which toured internationally between 1987 and 1989 (and is preserved on videotape). Adrian Noble followed their abridgement in The Plantagenets in 1988 , but with more traditional spectacle in the second play, ‘House of York’. Katie Mitchell’s stand-alone production at the RSC’s Other Place in 1994 , ‘Henry VI: The Battle for the Throne’, underlined the play’s religious ritual and natural imagery to heighten its anti-war themes.
