Shakespeare’s Henry IV in Cardiff tonight and tomorrow – Uni of South Wales

June 2, 2014

A University of South Wales production of William Shakespeare’s ‘Henry IV’ performed by third year Theatre students. “After a bitter civil war, Henry IV longs for domestic stability and a chance to join the crusades. However, the fault lines of the nation run deep and the struggling monarch must, once again, fight tooth and nail to save his crown. Meanwhile, his son, Prince Hal, languishes in the taverns and brothels of London with the notorious Sir John Falstaff and his cronies. As the greatest warrior of the age, Hotspur, galvanises the support of powerful rebels from across England, Wales and Scotland to depose King Henry, the young prince must confront his responsibilities to family and throne.” This full production adapts ‘Henry IV Pt. I’ and ‘Pt. II’ into one play running at approximately 2 and a half hours with an interval. Performances: 2nd June – 7pm. 3rd June – 2pm and 7pm. Director: Richard Hand Assistant Directors: Jess Smith and Alice Rush Tickets are £5 and can be purchased in person from the Atrium Cash Office on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings 9-12pm, or by phone 01443 668731. Payment by cash, cheque or cards is accepted.   See the Facebook page here.
