"The Flower of England's Face: William Shakespeare's Henry IV" by William Shakespeare
Adapted by: Reginald André Jackson
Directed by: Robin Lynn Smith

The Flower of England's Face: William Shakespeare's Henry IV looks at the human ability and necessity to reinvent ourselves; and the human resilience and courage it takes to break out of conventional expectations.

The Flower of England's Face: William Shakespeare's Henry IV looks at the human ability and necessity to reinvent ourselves; and the human resilience and courage it takes to break out of conventional expectations.

When asked what called her to tell this story of Henry IV for this year's tour, director Robin Lynn Smith, responded:

"I am continually surprised somehow that at every stage of our lives we are challenged to crash / burn and start over in a new, uncertain phase. I keep thinking I should be finished! Aging, loss, grief are great and formidable teachers. In Henry IV, both the public and private worlds are going through ground shaking transition. The Kingdom, coming off of revolt and civil war, is in a very precarious state; just as the characters are facing individual instability, and having to reinvent themselves."

The performances will be staged with live music and a score composed by Gino Yevdjevich of Kultur Shock. Gino is the lead vocalist and songwriter for Kultur Shock, an international touring band that resists nationalism, religious hate, and wars, which has played throughout the US and are also staples of the European and Russian club and festival circuit. Included in the performance will be life sized puppets by puppet master Annett Mateo (Monkey Wrench Puppet Lab). Set design is by Catherine Cornell (Book-It Repertory Theatre's Truth Like the Son).
