Putting Shakespeare’s first four known plays into a single work is not an small undertaking. The task of performing all four in under three hours sounds near impossible – unless you’re the Stanford Shakespeare Company, that is.

As is to be expected of any adaptation, especially one of this mass, there are some moments of confusion. Overall, however, “Wars of the Roses” is a surprisingly successful feat. Staged within the new McMurtry building, the seemingly unconventional modern location includes factors I ...
