Henry IV at the National Theatre

With The Rogue's Company $23.59 ex GST
$25.95 inc GST

The National Theatre had never before staged Shakespeare’s two most admired history plays; it was ten years since Michael Gambon had last appeared there, and five since director Nicholas Hytner had started talking to him about playing Falstaff. The plan was for Henry IV Parts 1 and 2 – which Kenneth Tynan called ‘great public plays in which a whole nation is under scrutiny and trial’ – to open the 2005 Travelex £10 season. 

Bella Merlin follows the production from pre-rehearsal planning to opening night, charting the processes that make up two major productions in the Olivier Theatre, and provides a unique insight into the staging of two great Shakespeare plays.
