General
This England: The Histories was a season of Shakespeare’s history plays staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2000-2001. The company staged both of Shakespeare’s tetralogies of history plays so that audiences could see all eight plays over several days. The plays staged were: Richard II, Henry IV, part 1, Henry IV, part 2, Henry V, Henry VI, part 1, Henry VI, part 2, Henry VI, part 3, and Richard III. The RSC retained the same actors in the same role, but gave different plays to different directors.
