“Henry IV, Part Two” by William Shakespeare at Shakespeare Santa Cruz

Tuesday, August 7, 2012 - Sunday, August 26, 2012
Sinsheimer-Stanley Festival Glen (UCSC)

Directed by Scott Wentworth

Our old friend Sir John Falstaff returns, in all his bawdy and riotous glory! But while Falstaff is carousing with his degenerate comrades, Prince Hal must prove to his dying father – King Henry – that he has what it takes to become King. In Henry IV, Part Two, Shakespeare has given us a profound tale of rebellion, shifting loyalties, and what it means to leave youth behind… all the while celebrating that which we hold most dear: life itself.
This second installment of our “Making of a King” trilogy is one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. Don’t fret if you missed Part One, each of these chapters stands on its own.

And stay tuned for 2013’s exciting conclusion to this powerful story!
