Remy Bumppo Theatre Company presents Pirandello's Henry IV
by Tom Stoppard. An Italian nobleman falls from his horse at a costume party and suddenly believes he is German Emperor Henry IV. While at first they play along, his friends decide that 20 years is long enough to indulge his regal fantasy, and they seek the help of a renowned psychiatrist to shock him back to reality. Re-imagined by Tom Stoppard, Pirandello’s Henry IV
is a gripping spiral of revelations that illuminates the distorted line between madness and sanity.
