This Item Includes Part One Of The HENRY IV Shakespeare Plays
Henry IV (Part One)
"By heaven, methinks it were an easy leap
To pluck bright honour from the pale-faced moon,
Or dive into the bottom of the deep,
Where fathom-line could never touch the ground,
And pluck up drowned honour by the locks."
Starring Peter Benson, Brenda Blethyn, Bernard Hill, Trevor Peacock and Brian Protheroe...
These are troubled times for King Henry. His son, Prince Henry acts more like a rogue than royalty, keeping the company of drunken highway robber Falstaff and other shady characters. Meanwhile, from the north come rumours of a rebellion led by the son of the Percy family, the valiant Hotspur.
One of Shakespeare's most celebrated dramatic achievements, this play mixes history and comedy effortlessly, moving from scenes of royalty to rough drinking dens with ease. This production matches its superb characters with great actors particularly evident in Anthony Quayle's magnificent Falstaff.
