Henry IV: Fact Versus Theater

Is Shakespeare’s “Henry IV” a faithful retelling of true events, or did the playwright make it sexier for audience appeal? We’ll examine the literary tug-of-war between art and history with Kathryne McDorman, Associate Professor of British History at Texas Christian University, and Kevin Moriarty, Artistic Director of the Dallas Theater Center. Moriarty’s production of “Henry IV” opens September 10th at the AT&T Performing Arts Center’s Wyly Theatre.
