Act I, Scenes i-iii

A battle between the French and English takes place without dialogue, depicted only as a series of actions, as specified by the stage directions. The siege represents the first of many huge struggles portrayed in this way.

As a brief description for everyone who hasn't read it yet - Henry VI, Part 1, often referred to as 1 Henry VI, is a history play by William Shakespeare, and possibly Christopher Marlowe and/or Thomas Nashe, believed to have been written in 1591 and set during the lifetime of King Henry VI of England.
