Who is Perkin Warbeck?
Fourteen years ago: a coup d’état.To claim the throne, Richard III’s nephews, Edward V and Richard Plantagenet, were murdered in the Tower of London. Or were they?
Perkin Warbeck proclaims what all of Europe knows: he is Richard Plantagenet, survived in secret and rightful heir to the Crown of England. He is come to challenge Henry VII, who proclaims what all of Europe knows: Perkin Warbeck is an imposter – a nobody from Tournai and nothing but a clever forgery.
Febrile uncertainty reigns. Everything is in flux. No one knows who or what they are. As the conflict between Perkin and Henry gathers strength, a deeper and more fundamental conflict emerges from within, destabilizing politics, love, fealty, even identity.
A history play about people who have lost all connection to their history, this performance examines what happens when a people cease to know who they are.
