Henry IV Part Two at the Barbican Theatre

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Antony Sher and Jasper Britton star in Henry IV as part of the RSC’s residency at the Barbican Theatre.

RSC artistic director Gregory Doran directs this acclaimed new production of Shakespeare’s Henry IV Parts One and Two, designed by Stephen Brimson Lewis.

CAST

An outstanding cast includes Antony Sher as Falstaff, Jasper Britton as Henry IV and Alex Hassell as Prince Hal.

THE STORY

King Henry’s health is failing as a second rebellion threatens to surface.
Intent on securing his legacy, he is uncertain that Hal is a worthy heir, believing him more concerned with earthly pleasures than the responsibility of rule. Meanwhile, Falstaff is sent to the countryside to recruit fresh troops.
Amongst the unwitting locals, opportunities for embezzlement and profiteering prove impossible to resist as Falstaff 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.
