A War of Roses

As part of the 30th anniversary of the founding of Nebraska Shakespeare, in November of 2016, the theater departments at Creighton University and the University of Nebraska at Omaha presented A War of Roses.

An original, two-part retelling of William Shakespeare's Henry 6 Trilogy, A War of Roses: (part 1) Foreign Flames and A War of Roses: (part 2) A Fire Within was a first-of- its-kind collaboration. 

Both productions featured casts and production teams comprised of faculty and students from both Creighton and UNO, as well as alumni professionals hired by Nebraska Shakespeare. Over 100 individuals were involved to make this a reality.
