Scenes from Henry IV

Join an online, script-in-hand performance with The Playhouse Lab.

The Playhouse Lab invites you to discover the drama of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries through unrehearsed script-in-hand performances.

The process is simple: we distribute roles and scripts among volunteers via email before assembling on Zoom in the evening. We then attempt to perform a play with no prior rehearsal. We take an interval and reconvene shortly after. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly – everyone is welcome to attend, whether just to watch or to read a role (no experience is required).

The first performance of this season will be a reading of scenes from William Shakespeare’s Henry IV.
