HAL

by Collin McConnell, directed by Joey Rizzolo

Loosely based on Henry IV, Part Two, Collin McConnell’s Hal is a meditation on the fear of loss. Hal struggles with the crushing weight of responsibility while saturating himself in a world of escape. Shakespeare’s Hal was a prince in a coming-of-age story that resulted in the prosperity of England. This play puts the titular prince on a stage so he can see the hole in the England’s paper sky.
