At Cardiff’s Chapter:

RSC Live Encore: Henry IV Part II

180 mins (TBC). Dir: Gregory Doran. With Anthony Sher, Jasper Britton, Alex Hassell.

Sunday 29th June, 2.15pm (also showing on 7th and 16th of July)

King Henry’s health is failing as a second rebellion threatens to surface. Intent on securing his legacy, he is uncertain that Hal is a worthy heir, believing him more concerned with earthly pleasures than with the responsibility of rule. Meanwhile, Falstaff is sent to the countryside to recruit fresh troops. Among the unwitting locals, opportunities for embezzlement and profiteering prove impossible to resist as Falstaff 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.

£13/£11/£10

At Cardiff’s Cineworld:

Shakespeare’s Globe: The Tempest

Monday 30th June, 1pm and 7.30pm

Roger Allam stars as Prospero in Jeremy Herrin’s handsome and hilarious production of Shakespeare’s late masterpiece. Prospero (Roger Allam), Duke of Milan, is usurped and exiled by his scheming brother Antonio (Jason Baughan). He’s now stranded on a remote island with his daughter Miranda (Jessie Buckley) and has become a great sorcerer. Serving him are deformed feral slave Caliban (James Garnon) and reluctant spirit Ariel (Colin Morgan). To exact his revenge, Prospero lures Antonio and the complicit Alonso (Peter Hamilton Dyer) to the island by conjuring up a great storm. Director Jeremy Herrin follows his acclaimed 2011 production of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ at the Globe with this funny and spellbinding staging of the Bard’s great meditation on forgiveness. Stage and screen star Roger Allam, whose credits include ‘The Thick of It’, returns to the Globe after his Olivier Award-winning triumph as Falstaff. The outstanding cast also includes Colin Morgan, of BBC ‘Merlin’ fame.
