Civil unrest, trouble with Europe, a monarchy in peril… it’s not 2022 but the late fifteenth century, and a young, newly crowned king is eager to assert power at home and abroad in Shakespeare’s bombastic Henry V.
When a humiliating message arrives from overseas, a bruised ego leads Henry to double down on a military invasion, at a devastating cost.
Performed in the intimate, indoor Sam Wanamaker Playhouse for the first time, join us as we explore the single-minded pursuit of Henry V, and what it means to be ‘British’. A production by Shakespeare’s Globe and Headlong with Leeds Playhouse and Royal & Derngate, Northampton, directed by Headlong Artistic Director Holly Race Roughan (Corrina, Corrina, Liverpool Everyman; Metamorphoses, Sam Wanamaker Playhouse).
‘The game’s afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry ‘God for Harry, England, and Saint George!’’
– Act III, scene 1
Galleries (Seating) £62 – £25
