The First Part of Henry the Fourth


This play is set in London and Shrewsbury

Plot synopsis

Henry feels guilty at nicking crown off Richard II. Also, son Prince Hal spends time with cheerful Falstaff (motto 'Love and a Bottle'), not at court. Also Harry Percy is getting stroppy. Climax at Shrewsbury: goodies triumph, complete with one-on-one between Hal and Harry (good job 'Henry' has so many short forms). But other baddies remain ... Now read on (Part 2).
