Editorial Reviews

Hotspur is dead and Prince Hal has proved his mettle on the battlefield, but King Henry IV lies dying and the rebels show no sign of surrendering. Even Sir John Falstaff is forced out of the taverns to raise a militia, but will his attachment to Hal be rewarded with promotion and the life of ease he feels sure he deserves? Henry IV Part 2 includes some of the greatest moments in Shakespeare: the deathbed scene of the old King, when Hal contemplates the crown; and Hal's devastating rejection of Falstaff himself. Roger Allam ('a Falstaff to treasure' - The Times) won the 2011 Best Actor Olivier Award for his performance in Henry IV Parts 1 and 2. 'Jamie Parker (Prince Hal) is 'terrific to watch' (London Evening Standard); he appeared in As You Like It at the Globe in 2009, and was also in The History Boys at the National Theatre, on Broadway and on film.

5.0 out of 5 stars HENRY IV @ home. September 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
Waited months for this to become available on DVD in this country. It was shown in simulcast on theater screens last summer, but unavailable for purchase til now. Great for any vid-library. These plays are not produced that often, particularly both parts, so it is a great satisfaction to have these. I hope Shakespeare Globe keeps offering their shows on home video.

From the end of part one of this history play by William Shakespeare (1564 to 1616):

(1) The charismatic Hotspur (a leading rebel against the King) is dead
(2) Prince Hal (the King's son) has proven his ability on the battlefield.

Beginning of part two of this play:

(1) King Henry IV lies dying.
(2) The rebels attack against the King's forces show no signs of surrendering.
(3) Falstaff is to raise a militia.

This Globe Theatre production of "Henry IV Part 2" (written circa 1598) brings the last part of this play (and the most interesting part, in my opinion) to life. It does so with some unforgettable acting (aided by good scenery, costumes, and music).

The title "Henry IV" is somewhat misleading. (You'll realize this when you watch this production.) King Henry is rarely on stage, and at times seems to exist solely as a peg upon which to hang the more interesting tale of Prince Hal and Sir John Falstaff.

Yes, the play generally is about Henry's struggle to maintain the throne. But the play itself centers on Prince Hal and his development from jokester into king. Two plots, one comic and one serious, are represented, respectively, by Falstaff & the Boar's Head Tavern gang and by King Henry & his court. Hal is sort of like a hinge upon which the two swing back and fourth.

Thus, there are two "musts" when bringing this play to the stage:

(1) You must have a good Falstaff. I was "hugely" impressed with actor Roger Allam's performance as that "huge hill of flesh" called Falstaff. He gives an admirable performance to what can be a difficult character to portray at times.

(2) You must have a good Prince Hal.

5.0 out of 5 stars FALSTAFF!!!! March 13, 2014
Verified Purchase
All I have to say. Falstaff is always open for contemplation. He is one of Shakespeare's most intelligent characters for sure.
