a two-part adaptation of Shakespeare's Henry VI plays
July 26 - August 11
The Hidden Room is honored to have been granted the rights to Edward Hall and Roger Warren's Rose Rage - an adaptation of Shakespeare's Henry VI trilogy, cut down into an epic two-part event. Theatrical Deviser Beth Burns will be the first director since Hall (Propeller) to tackle this cutting of Shakespeare's earliest historical masterpiece. The production will also introduce our Foreign Actor Exchange Program, where we will be joined by three actors from the UK, first rehearsing via Skype, then traveling to Austin to perform as an international team.
Filled with political intrigue and ruthless ambition, Rose Rage witnesses the toppling of kings, the loss of France, and the making of the monster that takes over young Richard III. July 26 - August 11th, in a hidden room somewhere within 311 W. 7th Street, Austin TX. Featuring an amazing all-male cast, beautiful live period music, and a bawdy, robust style. Costume design made with careful attention to Original Practices detail by the Baron's Men.
