Hall's Haymarket Rose Is All the Rage in U.K.

News   Hall's Haymarket Rose Is All the Rage in U.K.

Edward Hall, one of Britain's highest-profiled young directors, has been in the news again, as he has been left out of the short-list for the artistic directorship of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

As if to prove that the RSC needs him rather than the other way around, Hall co-devised his own version of Shakespeare's Henry VI plays, gave it the snappy title Rose Rage (the medieval Wars of the Roses, which dominated Henry's ill-fated reign) and has brought it to the Theatre Royal, Haymarket, where critics have loved his violent, intelligent, all-male production. —By Paul Webb Theatrenow
