The great battles of Agincourt, Tewkesbury, and Bosworth; the poetry of love, the treachery of power politics, and the unease of crowned heads - in short, Shakespeare's history plays - are here presented by the English Theatre Company in performances hailed for bringing to life the history as well as the plays."
