The Roger Williams National Memorial is pleased to host the Rhode Island Shakespeare Theater for their production of Henry IV Part I.

The play concerns Prince Hal, the son of King Henry IV, a young man who seems determined to ruin his life by hanging around the taverns and cathouses with the magnificently fat and rascally Sir John Falstaff, perhaps Shakespeare's funniest creation. Sir John is a drunk, a glutton, a thief, and a tremendous teller of tall tales about himself, and it's impossible not to love him in spite of your better instincts.

The performances are free, and begin at 8 PM at the Roger Williams National Memorial, 282 North Main Street, Providence.  The programs will be offered Thursday through Sunday evenings. May 29, 30, 31, and June 1; June 5, 6 ,7, 8; June 12, 13, 14, 15
