Wurtele Thrust Stage
Richard II
Richard II
by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
directed by JOSEPH HAJ
March 23 – May 24, 2024
Wurtele Thrust Stage

King Richard II presides over a complaint lodged by his cousin Henry Bolingbroke about the murder of their uncle, the Duke of Gloucester. Serving justice — and his own political agenda — Richard banishes Bolingbroke and takes advantage of his exile to seize his family’s estate and fund military activities in Ireland. When Bolingbroke returns early to reclaim his rightful inheritance, he quickly gains a following of sympathizers unhappy with Richard’s rule, including the powerful Percy family. With his grip on the realm slipping and the country’s stability at risk, Richard is forced to choose between confronting the rebellion and giving up the crown — the only identity he has ever known.

Henry IV
Henry IV
by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
directed by JOSEPH HAJ
March 30 – May 25, 2024
Wurtele Thrust Stage

King Henry IV hopes to lead an expedition to the Holy Land to atone for his part in Richard II’s death, but he is hindered by civil discontent in England. Meanwhile, the king’s oldest son and heir, Prince Hal, spends his time in London participating in pranks and robberies with father-figure Sir John Falstaff and other boisterous companions. As the political opposition to Henry grows, his former allies seize the opportunity to launch an open rebellion against the king. Among the leaders is young, hotheaded Harry Percy (aka Hotspur), who seeks glory on the battlefield. The two armies meet at the Battle of Shrewsbury where Prince Hal fights for redemption amidst swirling uncertainties of allegiances and succession.

Henry V
Henry V
by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
directed by JOSEPH HAJ
April 6 – May 25, 2024
Wurtele Thrust Stage

King Henry V strives to gain respect during England’s growing unrest, and he takes his father’s advice to turn the people’s attention toward foreign conquests, resolving to make a claim to the French crown. As the king prepares to set sail for France, an assassination plot is uncovered and England’s demands are rejected by France, raising the stakes and increasing the hostility in the air. The resulting Battle of Agincourt is a bold examination of power, camaraderie and courage against all odds as Henry leads his vastly outnumbered army to unexpected victory. The conquest not only turns a divided realm into a unified nation — it secures Henry’s place as one of England’s greatest warrior kings.
