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 Antony Sher (Falstaff), Jasper Britton (Henry IV), Alex Hassell (Prince Hal), Elliot Barnes-Worrell (Prince John/Francis), Martin Bassindale (Peto), Antony Byrne (Pistol), Sean Chapman (Northumberland), Oliver Ford Davies (Shallow), Paola Dionisotti (Mistress Quickly), Jonny Glynn (Warwick), Nia Gwynne (Doll Tearsheet), Jim Hooper (Silence), Youssef Kerkour (Westmoreland), Sam Marks (Poins), Keith Osborn (Scroop), Leigh Quinn (Wart), Joshua Richards (Bardolph), Simon Thorp (Lord Chief Justice), Trevor White (Mowbray), Simon Yadoo (Lord Bardolph), Nicholas Gerard-Martin, Robert Gilbert, Jennifer Kirby.
