Henry V Tickets

Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

Shakespeare’s history play explores the cost of war and British identity, as Henry V leads his troops to the Battle of Agincourt.

Shakespeare’s rousing exploration of national identity

The cries of Harry, England and St. George ring through the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse as Shakespeare’s wartime play Henry V storms into the venue.

When Henry V receives an insulting message from the French Dauphin, he strikes back by launching an invasion of France. Hellbent on taking a throne he claims is rightfully his, Henry’s military attack leads to the famous Battle of Agincourt.

Shakespeare’s Henry V play is a turbulent account of war and power, which questions how much the common people must sacrifice in service of one man’s ego.

The Globe company’s production of Shakespeare’s hugely popular history play is directed by Headlong Artistic Director Holly Race Roughan, and produced in collaboration with Headlong, Royal & Derngate Northampton and Leeds Playhouse. Performed in the intimate Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, audiences will feel every beat of Henry’s powerful rhetoric at close quarters.

The Henry V London cast is to be confirmed.

Discover a king’s single-minded pursuit at any cost with Henry V tickets, as a nation in domestic and overseas conflict unravels on stage.

Seriously mixed production. With a lot of production issues, there are some really nice performances. Obviously, the critics liked it (they would it is woke) but this is not Shakespeare as written. I have seen so many better versions.

The show start was delayed 45 mins as 2 cast members were indisposed. The two actors filling these roles read from scripts brilliantly and so the rehearsal before play made a real difference. The performance was slick, the set simple in green with th Read more
