Henry V

by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
directed by JOSEPH HAJ

A king becomes a hero

King Henry V strives to gain respect during England’s growing unrest, and he takes his father’s advice to turn the people’s attention toward foreign conquests, resolving to make a claim to the French crown. As the king prepares to set sail for France, an assassination plot is uncovered and England’s demands are rejected by France, raising the stakes and increasing the hostility in the air. The resulting Battle of Agincourt is a bold examination of power, camaraderie and courage against all odds as Henry leads his vastly outnumbered army to unexpected victory. The conquest not only turns a divided realm into a unified nation — it secures Henry’s place as one of England’s greatest warrior kings.
