‘ What is this castle call’d that stands hard by?’
‘They call it Agincourt.’
Act IV, scene 7
There’s trouble brewing between England and France…
As King Henry V attempts to prove himself a worthy ruler, he brazenly lays claim to parts of France.
When France mocks his claim, he leads the English forces across the Channel. England is at war.
The Globe Ensemble complete the Henriad with Henry V, or Harry England, a play that poses stark – and extremely timely – questions about national identity, leadership and power.
