Henry IV, Part 1

The company next brings Shakespeare’s epic tale of the War of the Roses to vivid life. As the play begins, Henry Bolingbroke has won the throne, but rebellions are popping up like violent molehills, and his son, Prince Hal, is more interested in the tavern than the battleground. Gastronome and nominally loyal knight Jack Falstaff is only too happy to lead young Hal down the garden path to debauchery, but the uprising of an ambitious nobleman nicknamed Hotspur forces the carefree young royal to confront his responsibilities.

Ohio Shakespeare Festival

"If you’ve ever wished that a Shakespeare production could somehow be outfitted with annotations and footnotes, to help you understand what’s going on at every moment, there’s a much easier (and more enjoyable) alternative,” says theater critic Christine Howey. “Just sit in the audience while the Ohio Shakespeare Festival is performing.” The lively and fun characterizations are a fitting approach to the works of the ever-sly Bard. Spectators find themselves outdoors at the lagoon in the Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, on the edge of their chairs as immortal plots twist and turn before their eyes and sandwiches.
