Kit Harington (‘Game of Thrones’) plays the title role in Shakespeare's thrilling study of nationalism, war and the psychology of power. Fresh to the throne, King Henry V launches England into a bloody war with France.
When his campaign encounters resistance, this inexperienced new ruler must prove he is fit to guide a country into war. Directed by Max Webster (‘Life of Pi’), this exciting modern production explores what it means to be English and our relationship to Europe, asking: do we ever get the leaders we deserve?
