Part two of a "fast-paced new distillation" of Shakespeare's Henriad. Can victory abroad resolve crisis at home? Henry IV and his charismatic son, Henry V, are the major players in this second of two new distillations of Shakespeare’s great dramas of kingship. Enjoy this epic drama on its own – or discover its exciting prequel in Breath of Kings: Rebellion.

The theatre has regularly scheduled "forums," throughout the run. These range from discussion panels, to tours, to hands-on workshops, and presentations. Most are on site. For this production, the subjects are:  "Behind the Scenes - TPT" on June 17th, "The Sublime Power of Conversion" on June 28th, and "Ideas at Stratford: The Challenge of History" on August 6th. The aim to create discussion and conversation in the community about the festival's season and to encourage the spread of information and education.
