Henry IV archiveWhat makes a king? What makes a father? Shakespeare's monumental history play travels to the heart of family, duty and country. In 2012, Phyllida Lloyd's all-female production of JULIUS CAESAR at the Donmar placed the play in a women's prison. It stunned audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and challenged the idea of 'who owns Shakespeare?' In the schools workshops around the production, teachers heard one girl speak in public for the first time. It couldn't end there. HENRY IV marks the return of Phyllida Lloyd, the reunion of the director with Harriet Walter and the second instalment in what will be a trilogy of works at the Donmar from these major artists.


Harriet Walter (Keng Henry), Jade Anouka (Hotspur), Clare Dunne (Hal), Ashley McGuire (Falstaff), Elizabeth Chan (Northumberland and Peto), Jackie Clune (Westmorland/Glendower), Shiloh Coke (Mortimer), Karen Dunbar (Vernon/Bardolph), Cynthia Erivo (Poins/the Earl of Douglas), Zainab Hasan (Hostess), Jennifer Joseph (Sir Walter Blunt), Ann Ogbomo (Worcester), Katie Robinson (Hotspur's Messenger), Sharon Rooney (Lady Percy/Gadshill)
