King Henry IV: The Shadow of Succession

SKU: 166 Categories: , Tags: ,

Shakespeare’s riveting, epic drama of a family in crisis, and a country on the brink of civil war. Wracked by illness and tormented by guilt, King Henry IV fears for England’s future after his death. The heir to the throne, Prince Hal, seems intent only on a life of debauchery in the company of the dissolute but hilarious Sir John Falstaff.  As war looms and the stakes increase, father and son struggle to face their destinies—and each other. Adapted by Charles Newell and David Bevington. A Court Theatre co-production.
