Henry IV, Part One 
All Female Cast

Evergreen Museum and Library (July 31 – August 16) & St. Mary’s Community Center (August 21-23)

Baltimore Shakespeare Factory (BSF) is delighted to announce its second production for its Shakespeare in the Meadow summer series at Evergreen Museum & Library. The play will be directed by the company’s founding director, Tom Delise.

With a group of rebels amassing support and a son joking, drinking, and thieving every night, the reign of King Henry IV is off to a rocky start. An all-female cast puts a new twist on this male-centric history. Bring a blanket or chairs and a picnic dinner and enjoy Shakespeare under the stars! There will also be three performances offered at St. Mary’s Community Center.
