Henry IV Part 1

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Rosa Joshi
September 3 - October 13, 2019

Riotous nights with friends and a father who's after you to take more responsibility are common features of youth. Less common is when your father is the King of England. A favorite actor returns to the Folger as four-time Helen Hayes Award-winner Edward Gero plays Falstaff in this compelling history. With Kate Eastwood Norris as Mistress Quickly, Naomi Jacobson as Worcester, and U. Jonathan Toppo as Northumberland. 


By Peter Shaffer
Directed by Richard Clifford
November 5 - December 22, 2019

Professional jealousy and personal crisis drive composer Antonio Salieri to turn from God and towards one clear, dark goal: destroying Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. After extraordinary Folger performances as Macbeth and Iago, Ian Merrill Peakes takes on the role of the jealous Salieri.  

The Merry Wives of Windsor

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Aaron Posner
January 14 - March 1, 2020

Falstaff has a plan to woo a wealthy woman of Windsor—he's not particular about which one. Though his romantic targets are fast friends, he hedges his bets and pursues both at once. Too bad for Falstaff (played by Brian Mani), the Windsor wives have plans of their own. With Kate Eastwood Norris reprising the role of Mistress Quickly, Cody Nickell, and Todd Scofield
