Offer currently available on selected performances: £55 tickets reduced to £35 (save 36%) RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran and the creative team that brought you the five star production of Richard II continue their exploration of Shakespeare’s history plays with Henry IV Parts I & II, an epic, comic and thrilling vision of a nation in turmoil. In Part I, Henry finds his crown under threat from enemies both foreign and domestic and prepares for war.

With the onset of war, Hal must confront his responsibilities to family and throne. The Barbican Centre presents fresh new work that hovers on the very edges of classification.
