Remember what it was like when you were young? Your father was always ragging on you about cutting the grass, pulling up your pants and hanging with the wrong crowd. Well, William Shakespeare knows how you feel, or he wouldn't have written an entire play about it. Reminisce about those painstakingly awkward golden years with Dallas Theater Center's presentation of Henry IV. Join King Henry on his quest to win England's Civil War and conquer the mischievous ways of his disappointing son, Prince Hal. Spending too much time with John Falstaff, the obese and alcoholic knight in residence, Hal ends up stealing from a bunch of locals at the town tavern. Forcing himself to bear the consequences of his actions, he ends up returning the money and forcing Falstaff into his father's army. Will the prince redeem himself, win the war and defeat his enemies? Thou shall soon find out. Henry IV stars Dallas Theater Center veteran Randy Moore and takes place Friday through October 10 at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, 2400 Flora St. Tickets are $17.50 to $74.50.
