Lecture 18
Shakespeare 2 Henry IV production
o Very different from the text interpretation
The focus on lower-class lifestyle is evident more so in the production of Henry IV, the
production uses the point of view of Falstaff as a grounding figure. Thus, in the rejection
scene towards the end, Falstaff seems rather pitiable. In the BBC production however,
Hal’s perspective seemed to be in focus more. Thus, Falstaff and his crew were made to
seem rather annoying
Differences between this adaptation and BBC adaptation
o Costumes ways director makes us feel alienated/invested
o Highlights difference between tavern and court
o Parody
o Hard to compare Falstaff mock status different kind of authority in this play
o Boghdana did productions for all tetrologies
