Henry IV Part II

Synopsis
The seventeenth in a weekly live stream project by Rob Myles to present all of Shakespeare’s plays in the order in which it is thought they were originally written. Using the Zoom video conferencing platform, it brings together many actors currently unable to travel and perform due to the Coronavirus crisis. The performance is introduced by director and producer Jeremy Mortimer, who mounts a defence of the play often seen as inferior to part 1.
