Like Game Of Thrones, but real
RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran and the creative team that brought you the five star production of Richard II and Henry IV continue their exploration of Shakespeare’s history plays with Henry V, the epic tale's conclusion in the 600th anniversary year of the Battle of Agincourt. Following on from the previous plays, Henry IV is dead and Hal is King. With England in a state of unrest, he must leave his rebellious youth behind and strive to gain the respect of his nobility and people. Laying claim to parts of France and reacting to insults from the French Dauphin, Henry gathers his troops and prepares for war. The Barbican Centre presents fresh new work that hovers on the very edges of classification. Work that marries dance, theatre and music in unexpected ways, explores what theatre could be, stirs emotions, is passionate, mischievous and makes you smile. It's a theatre that's constantly at the forefront of creative innovation. "Shakespeare was just never meant to be this much fun." – British Theatre Guide Suitable for all ages.
