Rose Rage was first seen in early 2001 at the Watermill Theatre in Newbury, West Berkshire.

Rose Rage Part 1:Leaving only an infant son as his heir, the legendary King Henry V is barely cold in his grave before the English nobility are squabbling over power and control. Keen to claim the English crown as his own, Richard of York sets the people’s hero Jack Cade to raising a rebellion, and the country is thrown into turmoil. At the battle of St Albans two mighty forces meet in a desperate contest for the throne . . .

Rose Rage Part 2: A weak and reluctant King Henry VI agrees that after his death, his crown shall pass to Richard of York, but in doing so throws his own wife and son into a rage. Raising an army, the infamous queen and her son, kill York and turn to the French for help in destroying his heirs, but, incensed by the murder of their father, Edward and Richard ‘Hunchback’ are a force to be reckoned with . ..
