Encore screenings are now taking place – find your nearest cinema.

King Henry's health is failing as a second rebellion threatens to surface. He is uncertain that Hal is a worthy heir, believing him more concerned with earthly pleasures than the responsibility of rule.

Meanwhile, Falstaff is sent to the countryside to recruit fresh troops. Amongst the unwitting locals, 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.

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.

This is a live screening of our new production of Henry IV Part II, which plays in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon from 28 March – 6 September 2014. Visit the production website.

Additional cinemas across the UK and around the world will be added all of the time - sign up here for the latest updates.
