In Pictures

As Margery Pinchwife in the BBC adapation of William Wycherley’s “The Country Wife”. Playing Queen Margaret opposite Alan Howard in the RSC production of “Henry V.” parts one to three. In a promotional picture during the rehearsals for “Henry V.”

Helen returned to the RSC to play another pivotal role for women in the theatre – Queen Margaret in “Henry V.” There was another BBC television adaptation, this time of William Wycherley’s “The Country Wife” and a very weird “big screen” adaptation of “Hamlet” by Celestino Coronado in a very own, very modern, very naked translation of the story.
