Beginning this Saturday at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse, the Atlanta Shakespeare Company returns to the 15th century and the War of the Roses. They are performing all three of Shakespeare’s Henry VI plays.
Those plays are rarely performed today but were wildly popular in Shakespeare’s own time.
“These are the plays that made Shakespeare’s career. This is how he got his name, how he won his position in Elizabethan theater world,” said Atlanta Shakespeare Company’s artistic director Jeff Watkins. He is also directing the three plays.
