RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran says Henry IV Parts I and II are two of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. We wondered if our audience would agree.
We asked people to vote in a poll on this page for Shakespeare’s greatest play (#shakespearesgreatest) from a list of all of his plays. The poll took place in the first week of January. 2222 people voted. 
And the winner is …
Hamlet was the overwhelming winner with 431 votes, followed by King Lear with 307 votes. Henry VIII, The Merry Wives of Windsor and Timon of Athens only had one vote each.

I’m surprised R&J didn’t break the top 10. Not because of quality but at least because of popularity. And JC is #18!
Full breakdown here.
