Some Black Storm

the people's rebellion of Jack Cade against the usurper King Henry VI


"...force perforce I'll make him yield the crown,
whose bookish rule has pulled fair England down."

About the Show


Nearly six centuries ago, an insurrectionist duke urged thousands of British citizens from across the country to gather in London. The violence escalated, leaving royal forces outnumbered and overwhelmed. Shakespeare's language is brought to life in this full-cast reading of a new adaptation of Henry VI, in all its rage, madness, and folly. Featuring Mahmoud Hakima, Matthew Kessen, phillip andrew bennett low, and Matthew Saxe!
