Henry IV, Part One (Fall 2016)
From playing thief to princely warrior, Prince Henry must learn the balance between work and play as he discovers his path to becoming King Henry V.
Set amidst a time of war in the late 1300s, Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part One tells the story of Prince Henry (nicknamed Hal), the unruly crown prince of England, on his journey from childhood to maturity as he frolics with friends and avoids his princely responsibilities. With his best friends, including the old thief Falstaff, he plans much merrymaking and adventures, against his father's wishes. As tensions rise between King Henry IV, Hal's father, and the young firebrand Hotspur, a new rebel of the court, Hal steps up to accept his role in the coming civil war. In the final showdown, Prince Henry must finally decide what it means to grow up.
