About The Event
Henry IV, Part 1, by William Shakespeare (go to EVENTS to see additional performances of Parts 1 and 2)
Monarchs and madness and megalomaniacs, oh thy... Witness the rarely performed Henry IV at Chesapeake Shakespeare Company with your new plus-some theater enthusiasts. Intimidated by Shakespeare? All pretense is off at Chesapeake Shakespeare Company. Come out on your own, with our without a plus-one, and sit with Mixolo.
It’s not often that you get to see parts one and two of the Bard’s Henry plays back to back. While named for Henry IV, the two historical chronicles, set around the turn of the 14th century, principally focus on the King’s son. The future Henry V (who did get a titular play of his own), is more familiarly, and affectionately, known here as Prince Hal.
We're offering three options for your convenience. You can sit with us (Part 1 only on March 3) or two parts (Part 1, March 3 and Part 2 March16, purchased separately). Or join us for a back-to-back performance (March 23) with a break for dinner. Indicate your interest when you sign up for either on a dining or happy hour option with the theater's "restaurant in residence" - the award-winning Chez Hugo Bistro.
Part I (This event listing is for Part 1 only)
In King Henry IV, Part I, the plot lines involve castle intrigue, as the King struggles to hold onto the crown he usurped from his predecessor, Richard II. But the King’s more pressing issue may just be his relationship to his son, Prince Hal. The young prince spends most of his time carousing with his friend Sir John Falstaff, who never met a pint he wouldn’t guzzle or a wench (apologies if offended by ye olde reference) he wouldn’t nuzzle. Meantime, the rebel, Hotspur is moving in. Will Hal step up to his noble calling?
Other Henry IV events at Chesapeake Shakespeare Company:
Part 2 (See separate event listing for Part 2. Details.)
The second installment of Henry IV shows a somewhat matured Hal, struggling to reconcile his imminent succession as his father nears death. Crowd favorite Falstaff reappears, doing his best to pull his favorite sidekick back to debauchery, but the soon-to-be-king must face his own future responsibilities as monarch.
Parts 1 and 2 (Separate event - you may attend a marathon performance with Mixolo on March 23. Details)
Binge watching IRL for the matinee and evening performances with an optional break for dinner with your new plus-some.
ABOUT OUR HOST VENUE:
The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company theater and cultural center, located near the Inner Harbor in Downtown Baltimore, opened in September 2014. This achievement was made possible with the support of devoted audiences and individual, corporate, philanthropic and governmental partners. CSC transformed a 19th Century landmark bank building into a modern 260-seat theater inspired by Shakespeare’s Globe. The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company (CSC) began in 2002 with a small group of artists committed to changing how people think about Shakespeare, by producing shows that allowed audiences to connect to classic works in whole new ways – ways that are fresh, innovative and sustainable.
