Henry VI Part 1
"Look on thy country, look on fertile France…" -Joan
The first of a trilogy, recreating Henry's early days as King. In the war with France, England is being driven off French soil. True to the popular view at the time, the French heroine Joan of Arc is characterized as a "minister of hell" and a wanton. We glimpse the beginning of the long civil wars between the Houses of York and Lancaster.
Starring Peter Benson, Trevor Peacock.
