Capped by one of the most famous speeches ever written, King Henry V recalls the momentous English victory at Agincourt. With comic sub-plots to be found among Henry’s soldiers, the production boasts some terrific performances – including Sam Cox as the ‘splendidly unhinged’ Pistol (Telegraph). In the title role is Jamie Parker, who ‘casts such a rapt spell that you feel the entire audience would rise up to march behind him.’ (Independent)

Broadcast into cinemas worldwide in May 2013.

Henry V was the play that opened the current Globe theatre.

Shakespeare’s masterpiece of the turbulence of war and the arts of peace.
