Fall Show: King Henry IV Part I

Recently crowned King Henry IV is currently facing down yet another uprising – this time from Henry Percy, England’s hot-headed golden child. The king is also disappointed in his eldest son and heir, Hal (Henry V), who is constantly fraternizing in taverns with thieves and other miscreants – like the infamously comical John Falstaff. However, as the rebellion rises, Prince Hal finally has the chance to prove to everyone that he can be the king he is destined to be, and maybe earn his father’s respect.
