Description

In an unstable political landscape, Henry IV’s rule is threatened by rebellion. His son Prince Hal must choose between carousing with Falstaff and his band of rogues or embracing his noble character and protecting the throne.

Featuring DC favorite Rick Foucheux in the title role and Delaney Williams of HBO’s The Wire as Falstaff.
