He's called Shakespeare's greatest character and his most decadent, but
both camps agree: Sir John Falstaff is one of the stage's most thrilling
symbols of human freedom. Balanced against a monarch, a warrior and a
princely heir, Falstaff's wit and pathos loom large. In this single
evening, drawn from both parts of Henry IV, two fathers wrangle for the love of sons whose destinies will rattle the rafters of the world.
At the height of the Civil War, Notre Dame produced Henry IV as its first Shakespeare play. Exactly 150 years later, we celebrate the Festival's 15th anniversary with the same story of rebellious children and rebels to the state. Join us as we raise our swords (and glasses) high!

Considered one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, Much Ado About Nothing marries hilarity with meditations on honor, shame, and deceit. Most recently adapted by Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Firefly) for his 2013 film version, this famous work chronicles two pairs of lovers: the sparring Beatrice and Benedick, and the love struck Claudio and Hero.
The play features Beatrice and Benedick engaged in a "merry war," proclaiming their disdain of love—and for one another—in Shakespeare’s celebrated battle of the sexes. Their delightfully witty banter carries the audience along on their journey from antagonism to mutual love with copious amounts of humor and a whole lot of negotiating!
