Nikita Milivojević has directed in Sweden, the USA, and Greece and is former Artistic Director of the celebrated BITEF festival - the most significant cultural forum in modern Serbia. He makes his debut in the UK with this thrilling drama of political scheming and military heroes.
King Henry V has died. For decades, England has been waging unsuccessful war with France. As infighting blights the English troops, their armies bit by bit lose the cities and territories he won. Henry V’s young son is crowned King but, in spite of his best efforts, his youth and inexperience proves no match for his enemies, both abroad and on his own soil.
