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.

At the height of the Civil War, Notre Dame produced Henry IV as its first-ever Shakespeare play. Exactly 150 years later, we celebrate the Festival’s 15th anniversary with the same story of rebellious youth and rebels to the state: Join us as we raise our swords high!
