HENRY V

October 23rd - October 28th

 

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Elizabeth Freestone

“I think the king is but a man.”

A divided nation. Trouble on the continent. An ambitious young prince.

Emerging from his wild youth with a sense of purpose and adventure, Henry V wages war on France with devastating efficiency. But at what cost? How can he be a good leader and a good man? What compromises must be made in the name of victory?

Shakespeare’s play is a thrilling examination of the nature of power. It explores the burden of leadership and explodes the myth of heroism. It depicts the powerful and the powerless fighting side by side. With characters drawn from across the United Kingdom, the play is a democratic portrayal of the ruler and the ruled.

Henry V compels us to examine our place in the world and look at our complex relationship with patriotism. Above all it speaks of the moral responsibility of our leaders: ‘Every subject’s duty is the king’s, but every subject’s soul is his own.’

★★★★ “A blast of fresh air… The acting is superb” The Times on Othello 2017

★★★★ “One of the best I have seen. It does not impose. It unlocks” The Observer on Othello 2017

★★★★ “Thrilling work” The Guardian on Romeo and Juliet 2015
