YES Festival: Falstaff and the Endless Machine

Artwork by Ellen Barlage

Falstaff and the Endless Machine explores how the most famous drunken coward in literary history became who he became.

The Year End Series (YES) Festival is NKU’s new-play festival, the oldest collegiate new-play festival in the country. For the 20th Anniversary, the School of the Arts will host four world-premiere plays, including the first regional collaboration.

Young Jack Falstaff is eager to join the army and prove himself worthy of becoming a knight, both to himself and to his friends at the Boar’s Head Tavern. After he signs up, however, he is given duties that he didn’t expect and don’t exactly sit right with him. How can he decide between friendship and duty? Love and honor? Justice and the law? Falstaff explores how the most famous drunken coward in literary history became who he became.
