Henry IV Part 1, or Hotspur
Shakespeare's Globe Summer Season
About Henry IV Part 1
Two Harrys: Harry Hotspur and Prince Hal. Sons to enemy fathers: Sir Henry Percy and King Henry IV. Hotspur is preparing to lead an army against the King – incensed at the King’s dismissal of the Percy family’s demands. But Hal is occupied in the pubs and streets of Eastcheap with his companion Sir John Falstaff, uninterested in his inheritance and in the fate of his country. In a polarised England, each person must choose which truth to believe, and which cause to call their own.
