By William Shakespeare
Follow your spirit: and upon this charge,
Cry — God for Harry! England and Saint George!
As England triumphs at the Battle of Agincourt during her quest to win the French crown, Henry V becomes one of the great warrior kings leading “we happy few, we band of brothers”.
Staged on the eve of the Chilcot report into why our country goes to war, and whom we trust to take us there, Henry V was directed by Donmar Warehouse Associate Director Robert Hastie, with Olivier Award-winning actress Michelle Terry in the title role.
