Pirandello's Henry IV

By Tom Stoppard

Directed by Nick Sandys

Oct. 5 - Nov. 13, 2016

 

 

An Italian nobleman falls from his horse at a costume party and suddenly believes he is German Emperor Henry IV. While at first they play along, his friends decide that 20 years is long enough to indulge his regal fantasy, and they seek the help of a renowned psychiatrist to shock him back to reality. Re-imagined by Tom Stoppard, Pirandello’s Henry IV is a gripping spiral of revelations that illuminate the distorted line between madness and sanity.

  Language lovers rejoice for Shaw’s most enduring and endearing critique of high society at the turn of the century. When Eliza Doolittle volunteers as the subject for Henry Higgins’ exciting social experiment, the optimistic flower girl opens the door to a world more fierce and complex than the dirty London streets. Filled with wit and wordplay, Pygmalion explores what defines who we are and who we might become.
