Quotes & Highlights
“Folger’s powerful cast reigns in Henry…this stab at Shakespeare Satisfies.” –The Washington Post
“Heroic, engaging…compulsively watchable” – The Washington Times
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. The drama of the battlefield and the comedy of the tavern converge in Shakespeare’s great history play that weighs the nature of honor and obligation.
Featuring DC favorite Rick Foucheux in the title role and Delaney Williams of HBO’s The Wire as Falstaff.
