Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V
by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
directed by JOSEPH HAJ
March 23 – May 25
Wurtele Thrust Stage
Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. So the history goes in Shakespeare’s three dramas encompassing the life and times of key players in the tumultuous English monarchy from 1398 to 1420: Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V. This dramatic feat marks a historic return for the Guthrie, as these plays were performed in rotating repertory on our stage more than 30 years ago.
Join us for this epic theatrical event and immerse yourself in Shakespeare’s examination of power, those who seek it and those who are destroyed by the brittle glory they crave.
