Rose Rage Summary

Rose Rage, a startlingly blunt retelling of William Shakespeare’s Henry VI trilogy, traces the monumental events surrounding England’s collapse in the 15th century – from the untimely death of warrior-king Henry V, through the deteriorations of his French conquests in the hands of his son Henry VI, the slow broiling of York’s rebellion, and the eruption of the Wars of the Roses, one of England’s bloodiest civil wars. Rose Rage is set in a Victorian slaughterhouse where masked butcher boys doubling as an ensemble chorus create a backdrop to the nobility’s orchestrated brutality. Battle scenes and murders are mimed before a background of literal butchery, with raw meat and red cabbage serving as metaphors for the intense violence of royal disputes.

Rose Rage Cast Members:

Richard W. Clothier, Jason Denuszek, Will Dickerson, Joe Forbrich, Sean Fortunato, Chris Genebach, Carman Lacivita, Fletcher McTaggart, Mark L. Montgomery, Scott Parkinson, Jay Whittaker, Bruce A. Young
