Austin Shakespeare presents Henry IV Parts 1 & 2
Austin Shakespeare will present a virtual staged reading of Henry IV, Parts 1 & 2. Newly crowned Henry IV struggles to keep his throne against a huge rebellion. His son, Prince Hal, begins the play as a wild boy, but transforms over the course of the story into a magnificent, heroic leader. Hal’s rowdy companions are headed by the legendary liar, cheat, braggard and lecher: Falstaff. Hal is contrasted by his key opponent, the valiant Hotspur, whom even his father King Henry admires.
The production will be live on March 27 & 28, with a recorded version available April 2 & 3.
