With the onset of the war, Hal and Falstaff are thrust into the brutal reality of the battlefield, where Hal must confront his responsibilities to family and throne.

Annual Visitor (29Apr19): Been to the Globe annually for many years - am not local. This is the only poor production I have seen. Under-rehearsed obviously (27th April) with actors talking over their cues and stumbling over their lines from the first page onwards. I have appreciated the merits of female actors playing roles written for male actors in the past - but this was just laughable. This was a poor REP company performance (at best) - apart from Hotspur. For me the silliness came to a head when the "landlady" was played by a male actor, imitating Mrs Brown down to the accent, in a largely female company. The whole thing was nothing more than a third rate drag act pantomime masquerading as theatre. It may well go down well with other audiences - but it wasn't for me. The cross-gender performances added no value whatsoever - but they did detract from the play. Others may well enjoy it of course - so ignore me! 1
