Show Description

Presented by Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles at The Japanese Garden on

the West Los Angeles VA Campus, Henry IV is a new version of

Shakespeare’s “Henry IV Parts One and Two” by 

Tony Award® winning director Daniel Sullivan.


With a rebellion brewing, King Henry calls for his trouble-making son Hal to

abandon his seedy bars and criminal hangouts and come home. But Hal has

ideas of his own, having taken up with the lovable liar and thief Sir John Falstaff

and his crew of highway robbers. Is Hal really ready for the royal

responsibilities his father desperately needs him to handle? A story about fathers and

sons, growing up and growing old, honor and rascals, Henry IV is an evening of

Shakespeare's greatest comedy and most touching drama.
