Following up on last season’s Part One, Henry IV Part Two has King Henry in failing health and young Prince Hal in a position where he must decide: fantasy and youthful rebellion or the sobering and often harsh realities of kingship.

Content Advisory
Henry IV Part Two is suitable for most audiences; it does contain the Bard’s usual innuendo and double entendres and some violence.
