Liev Schreiber stars in Shakespeare's Henry V. In Shakespeare's epic history play, the clarion call of patriotism is set against the uncompromising harshness of war. A young king, upon the urging of his advisors, aims to redeem his misspent youth, divert attention from domestic affairs and silence doubts over his ascent to the throne by invading France. His transformation from inexperienced monarch to military hero poses the question- does a rise to power demand a fall from humanity? Mark Wing Davey directs.
Tickets to HENRY V are FREE and will be available on the day of the performance (two per person, please) at The Delacorte Theater in Central Park beginning at 1:00 p.m. and at The Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street (near Astor Place), from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
