Henry IV is dead and Hal is King. With England in a state of unrest, he must leave his rebellious youth behind, striving to gain the respect of his nobility and people.

Set in modern surroundings, this timeless Shakespeare classic is cleverly brought up to date and explores the conflict between tradition and modernity in Britain through the lens of a nation at war. 

 A clash of traditional and modern, the performance optimises atmospheric neon scenography to place the audience in the current moment whilst maintaining the beauty of Shakespeare’s language. The play cleverly preserves Shakespeare’s questioning of the symbolism of monarchy whilst investigating current British Nationalism and explores what it means to be a great leader.

A beautiful original score transforms Shakespeare’s work into a modern, mesmerising spectacle of tension and excitement.
