In a divided country, King Henry IV must defend his rule from enemies both at home and abroad.
Following up on the thrilling Shakespeare: Drum and Colours pairing from winter 2022, an all-POC company gathers for this tale of a polarized nation. Featuring some of Shakespeare’s most enduring and endearing characters, this political epic also tells an intimate family story. The company of artists will transport you from the court to the tavern to the battlefield with laughter, poetry, and drama throughout.
Join Seattle Shakespeare for their first revisiting of this classic tale in an indoor production in 15 years. Its themes of responsibility to family and country, questions of legitimate rule, and the voice of the common person needing to be heard against a grand political change echo in our own contemporary moment.
