“Sam has assembled an astounding cast and creative team for El Henry, many of whom hail from San Diego – demonstrating the true community spirit of this latest Without Walls production,” remarked Playhouse artistic director Christopher Ashley.

Written in a unique poetic cadence called Calo, which mixes urban Spanish and English slang, this world-premiere adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part One explores the universal themes of this classic through the lens of Mexican-American machismo.
