Henry V



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Henry IV is dead and Hal is King. With England in a state of unrest, he must leave his rebellious youth behind, striving to gain the  respect of his nobility and people. Laying claim to parts of France and following an insult from the French Dauphin, Henry gathers his troops and prepares for a war that he hopes will unite his country. Gregory Doran continues his exploration of Shakespeare's History Plays with Henry V performed in the 600th anniversary year of the Battle of Agincourt. Following his performance as Hal in Henry IV Parts I & II Alex Hassell returns as Henry V.

Press Reviews

"... the Shakespearean event of the autumn... this is just what the nation ordered." (The Daily Telegraph)

"Doran avoids triumphalism while staying clear of any specifically anti-war interpretation... Robust and clear." (The Guardian)

"A production of huge flair and bite... Gregory Doran has crafted an impressive addition to his English histories project " (The Indpendent)

"In Gregory Doran's recent revivals of the two parts of Henry IV , Alex Hassell captured the complexities of Prince Hal growing up: the heir to the throne, at once conscious of his status and attempting to resist it, gradually becoming aware that his responsibilities are inescapable, until at the end of Part Two he is crowned King Henry V. In the play with Henry's own regnal title, Hassell continues the process with intelligence and honesty. It is a beautiful portrait." (The Financial Times)

"This production offers a strong and fluid account, traditional of dress but with glancing nods to modernism" (The Evening Standard)
