Henry V tickets
Shakespeare’s rousing exploration of national identityThe 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.
