Rogue Prince presented by Theatre Coup d'Etat

Theatre Coup d’Etat presents Rogue Prince, adapted by Gary Briggle and co-directed by Wendy Lehr and Gary Briggle, performing October 10 - 26, 2019, all 7:30pm showings at Calvary Baptist Church in Minneapolis.

Rogue Prince is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Henry IV Parts 1 and 2. Our story will focus on the the young Prince Hal and his relationship with his friend and father figure, the rouge Falstaff. Hal is caught between a father he respects but does not love, and a father-figure he loves but can’t respect. As the world changes around them both, each one realizes they must sacrifice who they are for who they will become - whether they want to or not.

Combining actor-driven movement, a blend of live and engineered soundscape, and the black box seating of the space, Theatre Coup d’Etat is proud to present this can’t-miss experience to the Twin Cities.

Admission is sliding scale, $18-$40. Tickets available at Calvary Baptist Church is located at 2608 Blaisdell Ave S.


Monday and Tuesday, May 27 and 28, 6:30pm - 9:00pm. Actors are asked to prepare two contrasting Shakespeare monologues, totaling no more than three minutes.
