King Henry's health is failing as a second rebellion threatens to surface. Intent on securing his legacy, he is uncertain that Hal is a worthy heir, believing him more concerned with earthly pleasures than the responsibility of rule. Meanwhile, Falstaff is sent to the countryside to recruit fresh troops. Amongst the unwitting locals, opportunities for embezzlement and profiteering prove impossible to resist as Falstaff gleefully indulges in the business of lining his own pockets. As the King's health continues to worsen, Hal must choose between duty and loyalty to an old friend in Shakespeare's heartbreaking conclusion to this pair of plays.Performers Jamie Parker (Prince Hal), William Gaunt (Worchester/Justice Shallow), Roger Allam (Falstaff), Oliver Cotton (Henry IV), Christopher Godwin (Northumberland/Silence), Sean Kearns (Glendower/Bullcolt/Warwick), Paul Rider (Bardolf/Scroop), Jade Williams (Lady Mortimer/Doll Tearsheet).
