Hudson Shakespeare Company: Henry IV

A return of fabulous Shakespeare performances by the Hudson Shakespeare Company!

Richard II's story continues into two parts of Henry IV in which it's best to remember the adage, 'Be careful what you wish for'.

The story follows three figures and their plots: Henry Bolingbroke, now reluctantly having become King Henry IV; his son Hal, who'd rather be partying than have any responsibility; and Hal's surrogate father, the mountain of drunken mirth but opportunistic criminal, Jack Falstaff. Henry rules a divided kingdom constantly on the brink of civil war headed up by the hotheaded Hotspur and his family. Henry, wracked with guilt over his treatment of Richard II, now wants to lead a quiet life in his later years, but doesn't trust his son to take over. Prince Hal knows he could easily rise to the challenge of being a king, but is having too great a time wasting time with his drinking buddies. Falstaff, always hustling for an angle, gleefully latches on to the prince so he can be rewarded by Hal becomes king. The three men all get what they want!
