Subject:    Renaissance Center Theater Company Broadcasts of The Henriad

War. Betrayal. The rise and fall of kings and kingdoms, as told by the 
greatest storyteller in the English language . . .

The Renaissance Center Theater Company and WMUA proudly present The 
Henriad, William Shakespeare's epic four-part history cycle, broadcast 
on radio and the web for the first time. The series will air on four 
successive Saturdays, from May 23 to June 13. Each broadcast will be 
from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
EST. There are three ways to listen:

1. If you live in western or central Massachusetts, tune in to WMUA 91.1 
FM during the scheduled broadcasts.

2. If you live outside the broadcast range, stream the simulcast online 
at http://www.wmua.org/listen.php

3. Order a CD or download of The Henriad. Ordering information is 
available at the production website <http://www.thehenriad.org>. 
Proceeds will support the Massachusetts Center for Renaissance Studies 
in its project to build the first reproduction Tudor-style great hall in 
the United States.

The broadcast schedule is as follows:

May 23: Richard II -- The arrogant King Richard banishes his cousin, 
Henry Bolingbroke, from England. But when Richard's extravagant ways 
anger his nobles, Bolingbroke returns from exile and seizes the crown to 
become King Henry IV.

May 30: Henry IV, Part One -- Several years later, Henry is betrayed by 
the friends who brought him to power. To crush the growing rebellion, 
the king must turn to his son Hal, who wastes his days in a London 
tavern with that villainous, abominable, misleader of youth, Sir Jack 
Falstaff.

June 6: Henry IV, Part Two -- In the aftermath of war, the country is 
again beset by civil strife as the surviving members of the rebellious 
faction attempt to reunite their powers. While the armies regroup, the 
king falls ill and fears chaos for his realm.

June 13: Henry V -- King Henry IV is dead and Hal is now King Henry V. 
To unite his divided people, he declares war on their legendary foes, 
the French. In the series' thrilling conclusion, Henry rallies his 
outnumbered army to victory at the legendary Battle of Agincourt and to 
claim for himself the throne of France.

The Henriad was adapted for radio and directed by Matteo Pangallo, with 
sound engineering and design by Tom Shread, sound engineering by 
Kathleen O'Keefe, and was produced by Lucinda Kidder. Funded by the 
Massachusetts Center for Renaissance Studies 
<http://www.umass.edu/renaissance/>,the UMass Arts Council, and the 
Office of the Provost of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. For 
more information, visit TheHenriad.org.
