The Leura Shakespeare Festival

Sunday 13 January 2019 to Sunday 27 January 2019

This summer Sport for Jove celebrates ten incredible years of theatre-making, ten summers of thrilling and surprising outdoor theatre, with their most immersive and ambitious season yet: Shakespeare’s Rose Riot.

Rose Riot is Artistic Director Damien Ryan’s furious new adaptation of Shakespeare’s extraordinary history cycle, covering a hundred years of riotous humanity and a pantheon of the earth’s most remarkable political thinkers and drinkers, warriors and clowns, villains, heroines and despots. From Richard II to Henry IV, Harry and Kate Percy, Falstaff and Henry V, Joan of Arc, Henry VI, the Queens Margaret and Elizabeth, Richard Plantagenet, the Lady Anne and her lover ‘misshapen Dick’.

The Hollow Crown (Richard II, Henry IV, Henry V) and The Wars of the Roses (Henry VI, Richard III) will be presented as two distinct but linked productions. Audiences can enjoy either show as a stand-alone production or experience full the cycle by seeing both in one day.

Summer Is Coming…
