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.

This is an LA Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Harry Althaus as Earl of Westmoreland and Justice Shallow; William Brown as King Henry IV; Wilson Cain III as Earl Of Northumberland and Bardolph; Michael J. Cargill as Thomas, Duke Of Clarence and Peto; Tony Dobrowolski as Earl Of Worcester and Chief Justice; Lisa A. Dodson as Mistress Quickly and Nurse; Shawn Douglass as Prince John and Poins; Raul Esparza as Hotspur and Pistol; Raymond Fox as Prince Henry; Ned Mochel as the Douglas and the Messenger; Nicholas Rudall a Sir John Falstaff; and Doran Schrantz as Humphrey, Duke Of Gloucester and Doll Tearsheet.

About the Author

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
