Guilford College’s theatre department ended their year with the Shakespearian epic, “House of York.” A combination of all of Shakespeare’s histories from “Henry IV,” parts I through III, and “Richard III,” as well as other outside sources ,including historical letters, petitions and laws, “House of York” was created by Guilford College’s own David Hammond.

managed two full performances.
