Description As the culmination of their three years together, Sydney Theatre Company's renowned resident ensemble, the STC Actors Company, presents The War Of The Roses, an audacious epic of language and history.

Joining the STC Actors Company is STC Co-Artistic Director Cate Blanchett, on stage in Australia for the first time in almost five years, as well as Robert Menzies, making a welcome return to the Company. Over eight hours, The War Of The Roses spans eight of Shakespeare's history plays, from the elegance and melancholy of Richard II through to the barbarity and catastrophe of Richard III,
