This week Henry VI is back at the Globe, inspiring our Word of the Week – ‘Subornation’.

Word of the Week: ’Subornation’ (n.) – aiding and abetting, inducement to do wrong, instigation

‘Ah, gracious lord, these days are dangerous.
Virtue is choked with foul ambition,
And charity chased hence by rancour’s hand.
Foul subordination is predominant,
And equity exiled your highness’ land.’
Henry VI: The Houses of York and Lancaster III.i
