Henry VIII

Our spring 2017 production will be Shakespeare and Fletcher’s Henry VIII. Ben Prusiner, who directed King Lear for YSP in autumn 2016, returns to direct this play. Promenade performances will be at the end of March / early April in the historic King’s Manor in York. Tickets are available from York Theatre Royal.

This will be an energetic, boisterous production filled with music, dance and of course lively, eloquent verse! We can now announce the cast:
