She-Wolf presented by De-Cruit

From captured princess to Queen of England, from warrior to “witch”, She-Wolf tells the story of the rise and retreat of Shakespeare’s Margaret d’Anjou.

At fifteen, Margaret of Anjou was taken as a prisoner of war, ransomed off for land by her father, propped up as a token queen to a feckless king, and thrown into a ‘nest of scorpions’ in the English court. She-Wolf follows Margaret, in Shakespeare’s own words, as she fights her way through Henry VI, parts one, two and three to her final departure towards France at the end of Richard III.

She-Wolf is a two-actor, 60 minute adaptation of four Shakespeare plays ( Henry VI, p1, 2, 3, Richard III) telling the story of the rise and retreat of Shakespeare’s Margaret of Anjou. In 2019 She-Wolf received an award from the Dramatist Guild Foundation.
