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!
