SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK
August 4 ~ August 27 at Chetzemoka Park
“Henry IV, Part 1” was first performed in 1597 and examines England’s troubled 15th century. The questions the play raises are timeless, and fit into the modern political climate just as well as the era of regal usurpers. Simultaneously action packed and thoughtfully comedic, with massive battles and intimate family drama, in a landscape filled with warriors, barflies, royals, buffoons – HENRY IV part 1 promises to be a exhilarating evening.
