“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers”

A young superstar King has ascended the English throne. When his advisors tell him the French throne is rightfully his too, Henry falls for their persuasion. An insult from the Dauphin – heir to the French throne – is enough to trigger Henry, who gathers a mighty fleet and invades France.

After defeating the French at Harfleur and Agincourt, the young King makes the old King of France swear to hand the throne to him on his death, making him King of both countries. To seal the deal he marries the old King’s daughter, Princess Katherine.

Based on the events of the Hundred Years’ War, Henry V is much more than a historical documentary. It is a play about the merits of war, set against the moral and personal cost of conflict.

Directed by Rob Forknall and brought to you by the same creative team from last year’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, this production takes its design cues from the game of chess, and promises to be a visual treat, full of action and intrigue.

“Once more unto the breach dear friends…”
