About the event

An  all-new production from Sport for Jove – Shakespeare’s Henry IV Part 1 –  played in the extraordinary site-specific environment of an empty  150-year-old church in Sydney’s Surry Hills. An unmissable experience.

Redemption?  Disgrace? Honour? Legitimacy? Love? Glory? What sort of world do the  young inherit from the old, and what should we fight for? What makes a  truly great leader? Henry IV is a play made for our time. Shakespeare  looks back at history to imagine his nation’s future and turns an  immense and kaleidoscopic national lens on that most simple and human of  relationships – the family.

The  play is moving, funny and thrillingly chaotic, swaying on a tightrope  of irrational thought and behaviour trying to maintain its sanity and  balance, tumbling from conniving politics to saturnalian madness as  people at every level of English society grasp for power, notoriety,  fame and loyalty from those around them.

It  is Shakespeare having an absolute ball with what this thing called  theatre can be and is one of the world’s greatest studies in courage,  crime, the nature of rebellion and the challenge of living up to our  responsibilities Sport for Jove’s brand new production of Henry IV is  another example of the exceptional clarity and accessibility which our  the company has become renowned.

A must-have experience for young people studying the play.

The  production is followed by a detailed 30 minute lecture on the play by  director Damien Ryan and Q&A with the students to deepen their  relationship to the work.
