|The Rhode Island Shakespeare Theater (TRIST)
will be performing Shakespeare's
"Henry IV Part One"
Thursday through Sunday nights from May 29th through June 15th at 8pm
May 29, 30, 31 & June 1 | June 5, 6, 7, 8 | June 12, 13, 14, 15
The play concerns Prince Hal, the son of King Henry IV, a young man who seems determined to
ruin his life by hanging around the taverns and cathouses with the magnificently fat and
rascally Sir John Falstaff, perhaps Shakespeare's funniest creation. Sir John is a drunk, a glutton,
a thief, and a tremendous teller of tall tales about himself, and it's impossible not to love him in spite
of your better instincts.
The characters range from generals to barmaids, from cowards to magicians, in a
freewheeling carnival of laughter and excitement.
As usual, the TRIST actors will perform in street clothes, drawing parallels between Shakespeare's world
and our own, in this universal story of fathers and sons, heroes and villains, and the larger than life
ne'er-do-wells that make our lives so much more interesting and wonderful.
