Henry IV is Tom Stoppard’s English version of Luigi Pirandello’s Enrico IV, an inspired and very contemporary mix of comedy and tragedy.

An Italian nobleman falls from his horse during a pageant. When he comes round, he believes he’s the medieval German emperor, King Henry IV. For twenty years he lives this illusion but today a plot is being hatched to shock him out of this ‘madness’ and into the twenty-first century.
Pirandello’s Henry IV, in Tom Stoppard’s new version, premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in May 2004.
