BAM, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and The Ohio State University present
King and Country: Shakespeare’s Great Cycle of Kings
Henry IV Part I
Royal Shakespeare Company

“...a major performance from Antony Sher as Falstaff.”
—The Guardian (UK)
“…it is Falstaff’s relish for language that Mr. Sher brings to buoyant life… He may guzzle wine as if it’s water, but what really feeds the energies of Mr. Sher’s Falstaff are words, glorious words.”
—The New York Times

War is imminent. Guilt weighs heavily on the newly crowned King Henry (Jasper Britton) after offing his rival King Richard. And Prince Hal (Alex Hassell) is carousing with ne’er-do-wells at the tavern. So begins Henry IV Part I, continuing the Royal Shakespeare Company’s sweeping cycle King and Country, directed by Gregory Doran. Shuttling between dingy alehouse and cloistered court and imbued with live music, Part I chronicles Prince Hal’s transition from wayward son—enabled by the hobbling drunk Falstaff (played with roguish charm by Olivier Award-winning actor Antony Sher)—to right-hand man on the eve of an epoch-defining battle.

Directed by Gregory Doran
