Henry VI Part I

Synopsis
The third in a weekly live stream project by Rob Myles to present all of Shakespeare’s plays in the order in which it is thought they were originally written. Using the Zoom video conferencing platform, it brings together many actors currently unable to travel and perform due to the Coronavirus crisis. Emer McHugh provides a detailed introduction to the play before the reading begins. During the original live performance, viewers were able to comment and ask questions for the cast and crew, who took part in a 30 minute conversation at the end of the reading. This has been appended to the file available on YouTube.
