But Hal has ideas of his own, having taken up with the lovable liar and thief Sir John Falstaff and his crew of highway robbers. Is Hal really ready to handle the royal responsibilities his father desperately needs him to? A story about fathers and sons, growing up and growing old, honor and rascals, Henry IV is an evening of Shakespeare’s greatest comedy and most touching drama.
