You know the drill by now. Shakespeare Dallas and the AT&T Performing Arts Center are steadily working their way through the Bard's entire repertoire. In case you didn't know, that's a lot of plays. They're doing that over a span of about five years. But for the past few months, we've seen staged readings of the plays that make up what's commonly referred to as Shakespeare's War of the Roses play cycle—Henry VI, Parts I, II, and III. Up until now, we've been concerned with King Henry and the civil war between the noble houses of York and Lancaster. Enter a new villain, the scheming, hunchbacked Richard III, whose bones were recently dug up under a parking lot in Leicester. No joke. Anyway, we don't want to spoil the end of Henry VI, Part III too much, so we'll just say that Richard's got big, bloody plans to supplant the current king and install himself on the throne.
