King Henry IV –by: William Shakespeare

King Henry IV, Part 1 is the second of Shakespeare’s eight Wars of the Roses history plays, with events following those of King Richard II. As the play opens, King Henry IV (formerly Henry Bolingbroke) and Henry Percy (Hotspur) argue over the disposition of prisoners from the Battle of Holmedon. The King’s attitude toward Mortimer and the Percy family prompts them to plot rebellion. In the meantime, his son Prince Hal is living the low life in the company of Sir John Falstaff. As the time of battle nears, Prince Hal joins his father and is given a high command. The p...

WILLIAM DUNLAP:

FATHER OF THE AMERICAN THEATRE

(1766 1839)

For, as a boy, his father being a Loyalist, there is no doubt that young William used to frequent the play house of the Red Coats, and we would like to believe actually saw some of the performances with w...

ANNAJANSKA, THE BOLSHEVIK EMPRESS

By George Bernard Shaw

ANNAJANSKA is frankly a bravura piece. The modern variety theatre demands for its "turns" little plays called sketches, to last twenty minutes or so, and to enable some favorite performer to make a brief but dazzling appearance on some barely passable dramatic pretext.
