Play of many parts

First published in Local

WAR, family rivalry and comedy are all rolled into one in a Shakespearian play to be screened at Bromsgrove's Artrix on May 28

Henry IV’s crown is under threat from enemies both foreign and domestic as he prepares for war in the RSC’s production of Henry IV Part 1.

Having deposed the previous king, he is only too aware how tenuous his position is, and the price to be paid if he falters.

Meanwhile Prince Hal is languishing in the taverns and brothels of London, revelling in the company of his friend and comic genius the notorious Sir John Falstaff.

With the onset of the war, Hal and Falstaff are thrust into the brutal reality of the battlefield, where Hal must confront his responsibilities to family and throne.

Antony Sher returns to the RSC to play the infamous Falstaff.

He is joined by Jasper Britton as Henry IV and Alex Hassell as Prince Hal.

RSC Live (delayed) presents Henry IV Part 1 on screen at Artrix cinema on Wednesday, May 28 at 7pm.

Tickets cost £14 and are available from the box office on 01527 577330 or artrix.co.uk

Henry IV Part II will be screened on July 2.
