Henry V: King Henry IV is dead and now his wild and irresponsible son Hal must step up and take the crown. Across the Channel the French laugh with disdain at the prospect. The metamorphosis from Prince Hal to King Henry V is essential if he is to demonstrate his power and authority. Shakespeare`s play, full of exciting action and superb language, illustrates the savagery of war and the delicate balance of statesmanship.
This play has produced in association with the Grand Theatre, Swansea and has been sponsored by Peter Lynn and Partners.
