The newly crowned King Henry IV has much on his mind. Not only does he have to deal with a rebellion led by Glendower, Northumberland and Hotspur, but his son and heir to the throne, Prince Hal, is behaving badly. It seems the young Prince has taken to hanging out at the Boar’s Head Tavern with the roguish knight Sir John Falstaff and his conspicuous friends. Tawdry fun and tavern games quickly turn to life and death as Prince Hal and Hotspur face off in at Shrewsbury. What’s a father to do?!

Shakespeare became the forefather of the sequel by penning this next chapter of our story. As sequels demand, this chapter is filled with even more humor, more rowdy tavern shenanigans, more Falstaff, and more rebellion than the first. Here, Prince Hal must decide once and for all whether to turn his back on Falstaff, his notorious friends and his ale-inspired antics or whether he will finally become the responsible son and heir to the throne that his father and country demand. Rarely performed, this “part” is a must-see.

What does rating this mean?

These are plays you may have read in high school or college. The plot is fairly uncomplicated, though some of the themes may be dense or dark. These plays may include supernatural elements, straight-forward politics, historical content or religious content. In these plays, there may also be bawdy language and certain adult situations. If we feel a show contains a plethora of Graphic Elizabethan Poetry (or is very bloody/violent/triggering) we will put that disclaimer in the blurb about the show.

Note for all plays: The performers of The Atlanta Shakespeare Company are specially trained to make Shakespeare’s text and intention clear, no matter the plot or the subject matter. They know precisely how to get to the emotional core of each line, each moment, each scene. We promise you will understand everything! Leave the heavy lifting to us!
