Henry IV Part 1 – Shakespeare meets Star Trek!

Captain Henry Bullingbrook of the USS Britannia faces a new challenge as an unprecedented alliance of Romulans, Klingons and Andorians is forming, bent on taking control of the planet Muritaria. Meanwhile, Henry’s daughter is hanging with a dodgy crowd from Engineering, pranking the debauched Lieutenant Falstaff and generally behaving in ways unworthy of a future starship commander, unlike the Romulan Hotspur who is seemingly everyone’s idea of an up-and-coming leader.

Star Trek meets Shakespeare in Eastbourne this summer as Butterfly Creek Theatre Troupe’s production of Henry IV, Part 1 presents history as you’ve never seen it before. Come with us on an Elizabethan adventure to the stars!

Outside in the Muritai School Yard (inside if the weather doesn’t come to the party). Dress up warmly – futuristic costume optional!

7:30 pm 23, 24 & 25 February and 2, 3 & 4 March.
