Henry IV features one of Shakespeare’s greatest creations: brilliant wordsmith and decadent party-boy, Sir John Falstaff. Balanced against a monarch, a warrior, and a princely heir, Falstaff’s wit and pathos loom large. In this conflation drawn from both parts of Henry IV, two father-figures wrangle for the love of a son whose destiny will rattle the rafters of the world.
