Set against the backdrop of one of the bloodiest civil wars in English history, A Mother’s War chronicles the integral contributions of a number of key women involved in bringing an end to the Wars of the Roses. The history books tell us of the Princes in the Tower and Henry Tudor’s victory at the Battle of Bosworth, but what about those whose stories have been overshadowed? Focusing on three key women – Margaret of Anjou, Elizabeth Woodville and Margaret Beaufort – as they look back across history to reassess their roles, A Mother’s War combines traditional musical theatre style with medieval pop, R&B and hip-hop.
The cast are: Lead Vocalists: Renée Lamb, Vicki Manse and Philippa Stefani with an ensemble comprising, Terry Burns, Rebecca Dawson, Rhiannon Drake, Will Geraint Drake, Kate Hume, Ben Irish, Amy Lynch, Aemilia Owen, Lara Sas, Humphrey Sitima, Jordan Veloso and Fed Zanni.
