Death. Honour. Beer. Everything is on the line as Falstaff struggles to achieve greatness in the face of an impending war, a failing friendship and a crippling addiction. The Falstaff Project is Shakespeare's Henry IV re-mastered as a roving theatre performance throughout The Artery. True to Artery style, following every performance a new local musical act hits the stage each night of the week.
The Falstaff Project is the newest work created by Thou Art Here Theatre, Edmonton's only site-sympathetic Shakespeare company. Since 2011, Thou Art Here has been adapting plays in collaboration with found space environments like The Artery. We strive for the space and the play to expand upon and highlight one another creating a brand new experience for the audience and performer. Our work has been hailed as "intelligible user-friendly Shakespeare", a "rollicking good time", and "how Shakespeare should be performed"!

Upon constructing a time machine and traveling into the not-so distant future, Big Ben met himself, the other Big Ben, a modestly successful underground MC with a dedicated following of artists, weirdos, aristocrats and grandparents. After losing to himself at a game of billiards in the Boston Pizza lounge, Big Ben ordered a plate of cactus cut potatoes and realized he could learn something from his better half. David Lynch and Kool Keith stopped by for an eight dollar schooner and the four friends talked late into the night. Big Ben learned how to pick his cue and how to sink a ball in the side pockets; then he learned about hip-hop. Big Ben taught Big […]
