The battle for the English crown continues. As tensions rise between York and Lancaster it is unclear who has the right to the throne. With the Duke of York gaining support, who will ultimately reach power and glory: the Duke or King Henry VI?

Commonwealth Shakespeare Company will bring a FREE! performance of Shakespeare’s Henry VI (Part II) to the Hyde Playground Bandstand, tonight Sunday July 29, at 7:30 PM as part of the Summer in the Highlands series.  Every weekend through Sept 8, the Hyde Bandstand features free music, movies and theater.  A performance by the  Commonwealth Shakespeare Company has become an annual feature of the Hyde’s wonderful summer program.
