Shakespeare's Globe Henry IV Part 2
The second installment of the Shakespeare's Globe 2010 production of Henry IV includes some of the greatest moments in Shakespeare: the deathbed scene of the old King, when Hal contemplates the crown; and Hal's devastating rejection of Falstaff himself.
Hotspur is dead and Prince Hal has proved his mettle on the battlefield, but King Henry IV lies dying and the rebels show no sign of surrendering. Even Sir John Falstaff is forced out of the taverns to raise a militia, but will his attachment to Hal be rewarded with promotion and the life of ease he feels sure he deserves?
Roger Allam won the 2011 Best Actor Olivier Award for his performance in Henry IV Parts 1 and 2.
