Henry the Fourth, Part One

Written by Shakespeare
Directed by Ariana Karp

The 2019 theme for the International Shakespeare Center is Questions of Honor, with performances of two of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, each one exploring what honor means and its importance to different people: Henry the Fourth, Part One, and Measure for Measure. They play on alternate nights with the same repertory cast.

Henry the Fourth, Part One: The reign of King Henry the Fourth (who usurped Richard the Second) is threatened by disgruntled noblemen who feel he is treating them unfairly. The King’s son, Prince Hal (who will eventually become Henry the Fifth), cavorts in taverns with low-class thieves and drunkards, including one of theater’s most enduring and memorable characters, Falstaff. Will he rise to his role as the future king?
