Henry IV Part 2, or Falstaff
Shakespeare's Globe Summer Season
About Henry IV Part 2
As King Henry IV lies dying and the rebels maintain their unrest, Falstaff, returned war-hero, and closest confidant of Prince Hal, is engaged to recruit for the King’s army. Falstaff is tired of war, he longs for it to be over, to return to the taverns of Eastcheap, and once the old King is dead, take his place in the court of his ‘sweet Prince’, King Henry V.
A nation at war with itself. A battleground between old friendships and new duties. And Falstaff stands at the heart of these conflicts.
