Henry IV Part I is broadcast 14 May 2014
With his crown under threat from enemies both foreign and domestic, Henry IV prepares for war. Having deposed the previous king, he is aware of his tenuous position, and the price to be paid if he falters.
Meanwhile in the taverns and brothels of London, Prince Hal is revelling in the company of the notorious Sir John Falstaff. With the onset of the war, Hal and Falstaff are thrust into the brutal reality of the battlefield, where Hal must confront his responsibilities to family and throne.
Following his production of Richard II in October 2013, RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran continues his exploration of Shakespeare's History Plays, with Antony Sher as Falstaff, Jasper Britton as Henry IV and Alex Hassell as Prince Hal.
