Henry IV, Part 2 is the second instalment of Shakespeare's account of the titanic battle between Prince Hal and Harry Hotspur.

King Henry IV is now lying dying whilst the rebels grow around him. Shakespeare's great comic creation Falstaff is now the closest confidant of Prince Hal, and is tasked with recruiting an army for for the king. But he's tired of war and longs for it to be over, and is waiting for the day that the old king is dead and he can take his place at the side of his sweet Prince, Henry V.

Note: the Globe's theatre season runs from April to October. Craig has been to watch a play at the Globe himself and thoroughly recommends it because it's not like any other theatre you've ever seen -- it's all open-air, for a start, and it has a standing area in the middle (called 'The Yard'). The actors sometimes parade through this yard during the scenes, and end up involving the crowd as if they were part of the cast. Read Craig's review of watching a play at the Globe before you go, so you can get a feeling for what it's like inside.
