ROSE RIOT - The Hollow Crown

“let us sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of kings…” Richard II

ROSE RIOT - The Wars of the Roses

“Glory is like a circle in the water…” Joan of Arc

Shakespeare’s Wars of the Roses, the inspiration for television’s Game of Thrones, is all about glory – its splendour and its terrible price. The red rose of Lancaster and the white rose of York seek to strangle each other in an epic, 30-year cycle of violence, romance, political manoeuvring, popular uprising and deep prophecy until the unweeded garden of the realm yields a new flower – the Tudor Rose – the white dyed in the heartblood of the red, the red turned pale with fear of the white.
