Theatre Space North East Present Henry IV Part 1

The old king, Richard, is dead. He was over thrown by Henry Bolingbroke, King Henry IV, but his reign is not going well. His conscience is troubling him, there is signs of rebellion already on the horizon from people who helped him to the throne and his son Prince Hal, refuses to live up to his role and would rather stick to the tavern. This classic piece explores honour, loyalty and the cost of power.
