Margaret of Anjou appeared in four of Shakespeare’s history plays, and between Henry IV and Richard III she grew from a fifteen-year old war bride to a warrior queen herself. Jennifer Dick’s unusual adaptation slices through all four plays, centering Margaret’s own story amidst England’s bloody Wars of the Roses. Running for just two weekends, Head Trick Theatre presents the US premiere of the play, with Kerstyn Desjardin in the title role and Head Trick artistic director Rebecca Maxfield directing. It’s the kickoff of the theatre’s 2019-20 season In War With Time, continuing in the fall with Mrs. Dalloway.
