Outdoor Theatre: William Shakespeare's 'Henry V'

"Once more unto the breach dear friends …" Join us for this production of William Shakespeare's Henry V.

  • Booking essential

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.

"Follow your spirit, and upon this charge cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'"
