About Player Kings

Legendary actor Sir Ian McKellen stars as the rogue Falstaff in Player Kings, writer and director Robert Icke’s thrilling new adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry IV. Book Player Kings tickets, and see the most prestigious show of the spring season.

This is England, 1403. Henry IV rules over a divided kingdom filled with corruption. A group of rebel lords plot to steal his throne, and the country is on the verge of war. Will his immature son, Prince Hal, ever grow up and step up to the throne? Will he see the error of his ways and give up his association with the scoundrel Sir John Falstaff and the other lowlifes who prowl the taverns of Eastcheap?

Combining the two plays Henry IV: Parts 1 and 2 into a gripping single show, this exciting production promises a historic story with contemporary resonance — and a rollicking good time with a multi-award-winning legend center stage. Book tickets to Player Kings in London on Box Office.
