Unstoppable acting legend Ian McKellen and revered director Robert Icke join forces for this incredibly exciting new show, Icke’s own adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Henry IV’ Parts 1 and 2 starring 84-year-old Sir Ian in the great role of dissolute knight John Falstaff.

It will be McKellen’s sixth play since turning 80, a remarkable workrate at any age, but his willingness to team up with auteur Icke to take on such a demanding role feels like some serious legacy-building.

We don’t know a huge amount about ‘The Player Kings’ beyond that: most mash-ups of the two plays tend to focus on the action-packed Part 1 more than the rambling Part 2. But Icke is renowned for mining new meaning out of classic texts, so who knows what route he’s going to take?
