Shakespeare In The Park — Henry IV Part I

falstaff brewing (5.29) Head over to the Roger Williams National Memorial this Thursday for the TRIST production of “Henry IV Part I.”

Boozy shenanigans, quarter-staff battle action, shady politics, magicians, thieves, and lovers are all in the mix as The Rhode Island Shakespeare Theater presents the Bard’s rambunctious slice of English history, “King Henry the Fourth, Part One.”

Audiences are in for some exhilarating combat involving quarter staffs and other ninja weapons, magnificently choreographed by Rudy Sanda. Joe Mecca is Sir John Falstaff, the magnificent, paunchy, cowardly rogue, Shakespeare’s triumph of comic creation.

“Henry the Fourth, Part One” plays Thursday through Sunday evenings at 8pm from May 29th through June 16th (schedule). Some seating will be provided, but patrons are advised to bring blankets or beach chairs. Picnics encouraged.

Free and open to the public, 8pm to 10pm, Thursday, May 29, RWNM, 282 North Main at Smith Street (directions)
