Delve into the troubled final days of the king's reign. New civil wars are brewing with the riotous and dissolute heir to the throne and his kingdom-to-be contracted in a spasm of anxiety. Except for Jack Falstaff and his band of irregulars. Join us as Shakespeare's greatest comic creation takes virtual center stage in all his corpulent glory.
