Suitable for ages 14+
Civil unrest, trouble with Europe, the death of a monarch… Experience Shakespeare’s unnervingly relevant Henry V in a production that offers a different perspective on England’s fifteenth-century hero.
Henry, the young and newly crowned king, is impatient to assert control over the people of England. Having received a humiliating gift from overseas, his bruised ego leads him to double down on a military invasion abroad in a bid to expand his green and pleasant land. But at what devastating cost?
Witness Henry’s bombastic pursuit of power, throwing into question what it really means to be English.
A production by Shakespeare’s Globe and Headlong with Leeds Playhouse and Royal & Derngate, Northampton, directed by Headlong’s Artistic Director Holly Race Roughan (Corrina, Corrina, Liverpool Everyman; Metamorphoses, Shakespeare’s Globe)
