Pirandello’s Henry IV

By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Nick Sandys
October 5 – November 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 illuminates the distorted line between madness and sanity.
