Feminist Shakespeare? Yes! British playwright Lauren Jansen-Parkes has fashioned a play incorporating Shakespeare and her own original text to tell the story of Margaret of Anjou, the de facto leader of England's House of Lancaster during the Wars of the Roses. Arrived from France for an arranged marriage to King Henry VI, the young Margaret is pushed headlong into one of England's bloodiest disputes for power. Actors will present short scenes, then join director Libby Vega and producer Carol Lashof for discussion.
