Henry IV Part Two
Shakespeare’s story about Henry IV (Parts I & II) is coming to Barbican Theatre in London. The play is an epic, comic and thrilling vision of a nation in turmoil.
King Henry’s health is failing, but he is uncertain Prince Hal is a worthy heir. Meanwhile, Falstaff is sent to the countryside to recruit fresh troops, where he gleefully indulges in the business of lining his own pockets. As the King’s health continues to worsen, Hal must choose between duty and loyalty to an old friend in Shakespeare’s heartbreaking conclusion to this pair of plays.
