July 17 to August 10, 2014
University Theatre
  • Bob Buckley and Lawrence Hecht, Richard II, CSF 2013
The better part of valour is discretion.
Directed by Carolyn Howarth

Often considered Shakespeare’s most sophisticated history play, the unquiet reign of Henry IV following the murder of Richard II introduces the Bard’s greatest comedic character, Falstaff, the licentious, crafty knight-adviser to Prince Hal. As the action moves from political sparring between the king and the rebellious Hotspur to the clash of swords in battle, the prince begins a journey toward his heroic reign. Our most traditional production for 2014, with a gorgeously styled medieval setting.
