King and Country: Shakespeare’s Great Cycle of Kings
Henry IV Part II
Royal Shakespeare Company

“Rich, absorbing and pulsing with life, Gregory Doran’s RSC productions of this pair of Shakespearean dramas are a triumphant achievement.”
—The Times (UK)

Henry IV’s army has suppressed the rebel uprising. But the king has fallen ill, Prince Hal (Alex Hassell) has fallen in again with the corrupting influences of Falstaff (Antony Sher), and a second uprising looms as Henry IV Part II begins, continuing the Royal Shakespeare Company’s sweeping cycle King and Country, directed by Gregory Doran. With indelible scenography—the Gloucester countryside bathed in golden light, the impeccable comic timing of Falstaff cohorts Justices Shallow and Silence, the prince’s tender encounter with his future crown—Henry IV concludes as a scepter is passed on and a young king’s first test looms on the horizon.

Directed by Gregory Doran
Set design and costume design by Stephen Brimson Lewis
Lighting design by Tim Mitchell
Music by Paul Englishby
Sound design by Martin Slavin
Movement by Michael Ashcroft
Fights by Terry King
