Henry V

June 28 – August 13 · Howard Family Stage

At the edge of the world, at the end of the world, a travelling theatre troupe performs Shakespeare’s Henry V.

So begins the tale of a war-torn land and of young King Hal, whom destiny has cast as a leader. Manipulated by false advisors, he plunges two nations into war. But will victory be worth the price?  Can there be another way? Shakespeare’s famous story poses timeless questions about the moral cost of war – and whether love and hope might turn the tide, both in Henry’s world and for us today.

Kate Besworth (The Taming of the Shrew, 2019) stars. Directed by Lois Anderson (The Taming of the Shrew, 2019; Lysistrata, 2018).
