Henry IV, Parts 1 & 2
September 29 - November 21, 2010
Honor was a tangible quality to the Elizabethans. You either had it, were losing it, or were trying to achieve it. ASP's The Coveted Crown explores a world in flux as King Henry IV questions his own legitimacy after deposing Richard II. The beloved Falstaff is a huge man with a talent for naming the absurd. And Hal, a prince with a partying problem & hidden ambition, is torn between their two worlds. Family dynamics, comedy, and fights to the death: a whole lot of mash-up around a little round crown.
