Following its premiere at the York Theatre Royal in June, Nick Bagnall's touring production will stop of at the four battle sites of the period: Tewkesbury, St Albans, Barnet and Towton. The last of these encounters resulted in "the biggest loss of life ever on English soil in a single day," artistic director Dominic Dromgoole explained, with 28,000 causalities incurred before Edward IV displaced Henry VI as king.

  I wonder whether they'll perform on the actual battlefields? Wikipedia seems to think Barnet was fought on a golf course

This press release details the Henry VI venues and performance dates. Interestingly their all-female Shrew touring production is to visit Singapore, Hong Kong and Beijing:

  I didn't get it :( even though I booked for more or less everything last year (including at least 15 Globe to Globe productions). Still got everything I wanted but if I hadn't I'd be futilely stamping my feet right now

Not sure why I got it! I got the same last year so was able to book early for the Rylances. Worth ticking every box you can find about "please send me marketing nonsense"!
