Our first presentation in the Year of the Rooster is the ever-popular history play 'Henry the Fourth, Part One'.

Since it was first performed in the 1590s, it has remained one of Shakespeare's most admired plays. It covers a turbulent period in English history, rife with treachery and rebellion. It also introduces some of Shakespeare's most popular characters, such as Henry "Hotspur" Percy, the dissolute Henry, Prince of Wales (Prince Hal), and the larger-than-life Sir John Falstaff.

The distinguished BBC cast features John Finch as the King, David Gwillim as Prince Hal, Tim Piggott-Smith as Henry 'Hotspur' Percy, and Anthony Quale as Falstaff.

We welcome back Stuart Varnam-Atkin as our guest lecturer. A long-term Japan resident, Stuart has carved a career in media-related activities, including writing, translation, narrating, acting and TV work and he presented various Shakespeare recitals last year to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Bard's death.

Warwickshire-born and Oxford-educated, Stuart is a prolific writer of books on Japanese culture, including The Best of Japanese Culture: A Photographic Overview (IBC) and Trad Japan, Mod Nippon (NHK). He has produced prose versions of several Shakespeare plays, and modernized the Bard's words in his bilingual Great Dialogues from the World of Shakespeare (The Japan Times). He's also a presenter on the current 15-part TV series Walking with Writers (Open University of Japan).  

Tickets for a sumptuous lunch are 2,000 Yen per person and a cash bar is available for your choice of drinks. Cancellations after 6 p.m. Monday, February 13th , will be charged in full. Please make reservations through the Front Desk.(Tel 03-3211-3161 or Online) 

Doors open and cocktails at 11:45. Lunch is from 12:00. The play, with a short intermission, will end at approximately 4.30 p.m.
