Standing the test of time as one of Shakespeare’s greatest works, Henry IV Part 1 follows two drastically different yet deeply intertwined plots. While King Henry IV grapples with a powerful rebellion spearheaded by the “Hotspur” Henry Percy, the heir apparent Prince Hal has abandoned his responsibilities to drink and party with the jovial drunkard Falstaff and other common folk of London. When tensions come to a head and all three Henrys meet on the battlefield, who will emerge with the crown?

Fezziwig’s Fortune

By Josie Seid and Sara Jean Accuardi

Directed by Josie Seid

Dec 6 – Dec 22, 2024

This play lifts Mr. Fezziwig from the pages of A Christmas Carol to tell a story all his own. Set after the jubilant Christmas ball where we meet young Scrooge’s benevolent employer in Dickens's tale, this story looks past Fezziwig’s merry smile to find a man who may be in need of a Christmas miracle all of his own. Fezziwig’s Fortune is an origin story about family, forgiveness, and the importance of what ties us together.
