Phyllida Lloyd's all-female, prison set take on Shakespeare's Henry IVIn 2012, Phyllida Lloyd’s all-female production of Julius Caesar was placed in a women’s prison and stunned audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, challenging the idea of ‘who owns Shakespeare?’. In 2014, Phyllida reunited with actor Harriet Walter for Henry IV, the second instalment in what was announced to be a trilogy of works – now it's back, and moving from The Donmar to Kings' Cross Theatre.
Stripping away minor characters, Lloyd concentrates on the relationship between King Henry, his callow but courageous son Hal and Hal’s grotesquely flawed yet charming associate Falstaff. As with her previous all-female Julius Caesar, this promises to be a grungy and rebellious reimagining of Shakespeare's classic.
