It’s 2045 in a huge, run-down metropolis called Aztlan City (formerly San Diego), where violent barrio families run the streets in a society abandoned by anglo America. Barrio kingpin El Hank eventually finds his street kingdom threatened, and he'll seek the help of his brave and charismatic son El Henry, who himself is wrapped up with a bunch of thieves and drunkards. Join La Jolla Playhouse as it ventures from its usual venue with its yearly Without Walls series – this one's at the new cultural venue SILO, in the East Village. It's “El Henry,” a modern adaptation of Shakespeare's “Henry IV, Part 1,” and it's directed by San Diego Repertory Theatre artistic director Sam Woodhouse and features Rep resident artist Herbert Siguenza, founder of Latino comedy troupe Culture Clash.
EL HENRY: June 14 through 29, 7:30 p.m. at SILO, 753 15th St. in East Village. Lajollaplayhouse.org/el-henry.
