Player Kings Tickets

Noël Coward Theatre, London

Exclusive Price

Ian McKellen - 'one of the world's greatest actors' (Times) - plays Falstaff in a new version of Shakespeare’s Henry IV, adapted by the award-winning writer and director Robert Icke. A divided country, leadership crumbling, corruption in the air. Welcome to England.

Hal wasn't born to be king. Only now, it seems, he will be. His father longs for him to leave behind his friends in the taverns of Eastcheap, most notably the infamous John Falstaff. War is on the horizon. But will Hal ever come good?

Bringing together Shakespeare's two great history plays (Henry IV, parts 1 and 2), Player Kings will reign over London’s West End for twelve weeks only – playing at the Noël Coward Theatre from April 2024.

Good to Know

Ian Mckellen will not be performing in the last 3 performances (20th-22nd June) due to his recent fall. The role of Sir John Falstaff will be played by David Semark. This production contains adult themes, gunshots, strobe, haze and smoking of real cigarettes.
