2016 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival: The King’s Face
The 2016 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival will present Shakespeare Dallas' The King’s Face.
The King’s Face is loosely based on the true story of a wounded warrior. It is 1403, a time of war and terrorism. At the battle of Shrewsbury, King Henry IV finally secures his crown. Late in the battle his son, and heir to the throne, Prince Harry of Monmouth is struck down by an arrow to the face. The impact of the arrow is no glancing blow. The wound festers and the life of the future monarch is in jeopardy. The story reflects the universal ordeal of all wounded warriors.
Performances will take place in the Studio Theatre.
