Description

Live performance of William Shakespeare's historical play at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2014.

When King Henry IV (Jasper Britton) is confined to his bed with a serious illness it seems likely that his son, Hal (Alex Hassell), will shortly be appointed king.

Hal's suitability for the role, however, concerns the present king even as his death approaches and Hal takes the decision to spend less time with his friends in preparation for the responsibilities of leadership.

Falstaff (Antony Sher), meanwhile, comes out of semi-retirement to raise a small militia.

Now getting on in years, the rascal hopes his friendship with Hal will land him the comfortable retirement he seeks, but will Hal be true to his old allies when he finally puts on the crown?
