JCC: War of the Roses
House of Lancaster

We begin in May of 1455, in the weeks leading up to the First Battle of St. Albans. Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York has recently stepped down from his position as the Lord Protector, which he held for ten months while King Henry VI struggled to overcome a bout of mental illness. The members of the Houses of Lancaster and York meet in separate rooms, preparing for an uneasy peace to break. When turmoil breaks out surrounding the line of succession, both Houses must plan their next moves to decide the fate of England. The two sides of the JCC must work with but also against each other in order to have their house under the throne.
