Tonight, is the opening night of Henry IV Part I at the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company. The play is the first of Shakespeare’s seven “Henry’s,” as they’re known by aficionados of the Bard, and it’s considered one of Shakespeare’s most ambitious history plays. Written between 1596 and 1599, Henry IV Part I and Henry IV Part II tell a story of friends, fathers and sons, war, and the weight of honor. Tom is joined in Studio A by Seamus Miller who plays Prince Hal; and Gregory Burgess, who plays Prince Hal’s mentor, the incorrigible Sir John Falstaff. The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company will be presenting Henry IV Parts I and II in repertory on selected Saturdays in March. This segment was streamed live on the WYPR Facebook Page.
