Blood and Roses

7 March – 27 October 2001

As a boy, Lambert Simnel was taught to forget that he was ever anything other than a prince, yet he would spend the rest of his life trying to forget that he was ever anything other than an ordinary man.

Set in 1507 in the heart of the royal kitchens, Blood and Roses recounted the life story of this pretender to the throne of Henry VII. This was the first Trestle production using half-masks, giving masked characters a voice.
