Henry IV, Part 1 and Part 2

directed by Julane Havens

featuring Charlie Sexton as Falstaff

Amid uncertain alliances, troubled borders, and a dissolute son with ne’er-do-well comrades — including the entertaining, vain, and cowardly Falstaff played by Artistic Director Charlie Sexton — Henry’s rule teeters on a precipice. But as battles rage and new enemies emerge, Prince Hal rises to the occasion and proves himself worthy of the crown in word and deed. But in the course of these two plays, can this scion reconcile his wine-sop lifestyle with assuming the mantle of leadership?


The Beaux’ Stratagem

adapted by Thornton Wilder & Ken Ludwig

directed by Hallie Dizdarevic

Two broke libertines from London venture to the English countryside in search of a rich wife — for one of them, at least — but find themselves entangled with an unhappily married lady and a band of scheming brigands intent on stealing her fortune.
