Henry IV Part II

The Roaring Girl

The Roaring Girl

"Out of this nettle danger, we pluck this flower safety"

With his crown under threat from enemies both foreign and domestic, Henry IV prepares for war.

Having deposed the previous king, he is only too aware how tenuous his position is, and the price to be paid if he falters.

As his father prepares to defend his crown, Prince Hal is languishing in the taverns and brothels of London, revelling in the company of his friend, the notorious Sir John Falstaff.

With the onset of the war, Hal and Falstaff are thrust into the brutal reality of the battlefield, where Hal must confront his responsibilities to family and throne.

RSC Associate Artist Antony Sher returns to the Company to play the infamous comic knight Falstaff. He is joined by Jasper Britton as Henry IV and Alex Hassell as Prince Hal. Jasper returns following his performances in The Taming of the Shrew/The Tamer Tamed (2003). Alex returns to the RSC following his recent credits in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Cardenio and The City Madam (2011).

Running time: 2 hrs 45 mins + 20 mins interval

Henry IV Part I will also be broadcast live to cinemas on 14 May 2014.
