Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s Apprentice Program presents:


Henry IV, part 1

Directed by Bryn Boice


Friday, August 4, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Menotomy Rocks Park
129 Jason St, Arlington, MA 02476

The First Part of King Henry IV uncovers mounting tensions and tests of loyalty to King Henry’s crown–seen by some as stolen from his predecessor, King Richard II. As factions turn against the king, the country’s turmoil causes the young, slacker Prince Henry (and friends) to step up in defense of his father’s kingdom.

Shakespeare’s famed history play asks us, “What will we do in times of political crisis? Play dead or fight back?”
