"Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall"
Shakespeare’s dark comedy leads a compelling season by posing controversial ideas and by exploring the corrupting nature of power. Director Jonathan Munby (STC's 2009 hit, The Dog in The Manager) returns to direct this play of ethics and morality.
Playing in repertory with Henry IV, Part 2
“The better part of valor is, discretion.”
A young prince must decide between tavern roughhousing and the burden of his father’s legacy, in the coming-of-age story of heroism, corruption and war. STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn directs the masterful Stacy Keach (King Lear, Macbeth) who plays Shakespeare’s beloved character, Falstaff.
Playing in repertory with Henry IV, Part 1
“Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.”
Continuing from Henry IV Part 1, Young Price Hal seeks to prove to his father, King Henry IV (Edward Gero), that he’s ready to the throne by leaving his lowlife behavior behind him. The King’s sudden illness and a bloody war forces Hal into action.
