Henry IV Tickets
Henry IV Tickets
One of Shakespeare's best-known and beloved plays, Henry IV is a story of friendship, power and the indefatigable human spirit. Henry IV is part of the Bard's famous trilogy of plays and is believed to have been written in the late 1500s.
Within the play, King Henry IV is struggling in his position as King. The action of the play follows King Henry IV through his tense interactions with the Percy Family, the subsequent battles between them and his friendship with his portly, drunken foil Falstaff, who has always been and remains to this day one of the favourite characters of the play.
A favourite among Shakespeare fans and inexperienced theatregoers alike, Henry IV is one show you can't afford to miss.
Henry IV runs for a series of months during the winter season. Most shows are at Donmar at King's Cross, and because of the limited size of the venue, shows sell out quite quickly. Parties interested in seeing the performance must be careful to secure their Henry IV tickets early.
