Henry IV, part 2

What does it take to be a good leader? A good father? A good son? A good human? This delightful play offers up these questions and more with no easy answers in sight.

In the midst of dying and an ongoing insurrection from rebel factions, King Henry is consumed by his fear of what type of king Prince Hal will be after he passes. Tutored in the nefarious and lecherous ways by the larger than life Sir John Falstaff, will Hal be able to leave his wild past behind and be the leader a divided England needs? And at what cost? This play is a tale of two Englands, one of means and privilege and one of salty earth, and probes what happens when these two worlds collide. The stakes are high for both and as the nation shifts, clear winners and losers emerge. 

Part 2 is the third play in Shakespeare’s eight-play, double-tetralogy of history plays chronicling the reigns of Richard II, Henrys IV, V and VI, and culminating with Richard III.

Our 2019 season runs from July 12 through August 17. We’ll post the full schedule and other information here when it’s finalized.
