Henry IV

KDC Theatre Presents

William Shakespeare’s Henry IV

Uneasy is the head that wears the crown.

Henry IV is a story of power, honour and rebellion. The king has the weight of the world on his shoulders. All he wants is a united kingdom, and to take his army to the Holy Land - Jerusalem. But he’s being held back by issues closer to home - the rebelling nobleman who helped him to the throne and his wayward son, Hal. Can he get his home and country in order so that he can fulfil his destiny? Loosely based on true history, this new version of Shakespeare’s Henry IV by KDC Theatre has been adapted from the two plays that normally tell the story of this noble and troubled king.
