The Complete Walk: Henry VI Part II

2016, 10 minutes

One of 37 short films shown across the Southbank in April to celebrate Shakespeare's birthday

Young King Henry returns from wars in France with Margaret, his new Queen. The domineering Queen and the Earl of Suffolk take advantage of the King’s weakness to further their own political ends, much to the horror of the Duke of Gloucester. As Lords scheme and plot against one another, Jack Cade stirs up dreams of rebellion amongst the peasants, and, as the Wars of the Roses begin, King Henry is forced to take up arms to defend his crown.
