UCLU Drama Society
13 – 15 November 2014
7:30pm – 9:45pm (2h15m)
£5 – £10 (

This November, UCLU Drama Society presents an exciting new student production of Henry IV Part I chronicling the rise of Hal from licentious lout to moral monarch.

But do not expect a traditional student production. While remaining true to Shakespeare's original text, his celebrated characters will be hurtled forward four hundred years into London, 1940, where the city is on the cusp of a different war. King Henry IV's patriotism will become Churchill's resoluteness in the face of conflict; the rebels' defiance transforms into that of the Nazi sympathisers, led by the Wallace Simpson-esque Worcester. The King's throne room will be presented as a replica of Churchill's wartime office; similarly, the Boar's Head Tavern will become the quintessential 1940s bar, inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper and the aesthetics of noir films. Falstaff and his merry band of brothers will embody the growth of swing and jazz music, Hollywood movies, experimental fashion and the all-encompassing reaction against the austerity of war......
