young rebels and a king:
Harry “Hotspur” Percy is mounting a rebellion to defend the honor of his family against the callous power of his uncle, King Henry IV.
Prince Hal is recklessly drinking away his legitimate authority as heir to the throne, presiding with his obnoxious friend Falstaff over a small kingdom of drunkards and thieves at the Boar’s Head Tavern.
King Henry IV’s plan to lead a
victorious crusade to the Holy Lands is quashed by the mess at home.
In epic style, forces will clash on the battle field and in the hearts of all three men.
