Once more into the breach with the Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
Opened Apr 29, 2014
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!" In a rousing finale to a tremendous season, Shakespeare's powerful history play takes center stage in our magnificent Courtyard Theater for the very first time. Acclaimed British director Christopher Luscombe, whose work has been featured at the Royal Shakespeare Company, sheds new light on the Bard's legendary coming-of-age story. A charismatic young monarch confronted by the ferocity of war, against all odds, proves his worth as a man, and king. Henry V is a rallying cry to all, celebrating the power of language to summon battlefields from thin air and ignite our souls to action.
