Two series continue in this season of Shakespeare Santa Cruz: Falstaff and the Henry dynasty pick up where they left off in Henry IV. Henry IV part two tells the story of the rise of Prince Hal to succeed his father and become Henry V — that play is scheduled for next season.
The Man in the Iron Mask continues the story of the Three Musketeers. Scott Wentworth, who has played numerous roles in Shakespeare Santa Cruz wrote the play and the festival hopes it will b performed by other companies.
Also this season, artistic director Marco Barricelli directs Twelfth Night.
