With his crown under threat from enemies both foreign and domestic, Henry IV prepares for war. Having deposed the previous king, he is only too aware how tenuous his position is, and the price to be paid if he falters. As his father prepares to defend his crown, Prince Hal is languishing in the taverns and brothels of London, revelling in the company of his friend, the notorious Sir John Falstaff. 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.Performers Antony Sher (Falstaff), Jasper Britton (Henry IV), Alex Hassell (Prince Hal), Elliot Barnes-Worrell (Prince John/Francis), Martin Bassindale (Peto), Antony Byrne (Worcester), Sean Chapman (Northumberland/Earl of Douglas), Paola Dionisotti (Mistress Quickly), Jonny Glynn (Gadshill), Nia Gwynne (Lady Mortimer), Jim Hooper (Sir Richard Vernon), Youssef Kerkour (Westmoreland), Sam Marks (Poins), Keith Osborn (Scroop), Leigh Quinn (Traveller), Joshua Richards (Bardolph/Glendower), Simon Thorp (Sir Walter Blunt), Trever White (Hotspur), Simon Yadoo (Chamberlain), Nicholas Gerard-Martin, Robert Gilbert, Jennifer Kirby.
