In this satirical retelling of Shakespeare’s Henry IV plays, it’s 1399, despised King Richard II has been deposed, and now the infamous, blundering, roguish Jack Falstaff has the crown of England! Yet, competing rebellious factions in the kingdom threaten his new reign. Who will come out ahead? It may be who you least expect...

This production contains strong language, violence, adult themes, and the use of theatrical haze.
