Production Description

Casting "Henry IV: Part 1" for Extant Arts' sixth summer season. Synopsis: While the newly-crowned King Henry IV struggles to consolidate his power, his ne’er-do-well-son consorts with drunkards and thieves. As unrest boils over into open revolt, Prince Hal must weigh the family he was born to against the family he made, and discover where his loyalty truly lies. Staged in contemporary dress with minimal props, no fourth wall, and an emphasis on text, acting, and movement, the production is aimed at storytelling through active imagination and audience engagement.
