About Henry IV Part 2
Gregory Doran directs Shakespeare's epic pair of plays with a cast including Antony Sher as Sir John Falstaff, Jasper Britton as King Henry and Alex Hassell as Prince Hal.
King Henry's health is failing but he is uncertain Hal is a worthy heir. Meanwhile, Falstaff is sent to the countryside to recruit fresh troops, where he gleefully indulges in the business of lining his own pockets. As the King's health continues to worsen, Hal must choose between duty and loyalty to an old friend in Shakespeare's heart-breaking conclusion to this pair of plays.
The Royal Shakespeare Company return to the Barbican with a residency that will culminate in January 2016 with a major theatrical event to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death: KING AND COUNTRY: Shakespeare's Great Cycle of Kings - a complete 4-play season cycle of Richard II, Henry IV Parts I & II and Henry V in repertoire.
