About this show

The Shakespearean epic follows a charismatic warrior King and his men through the brutality of warfare, as the ragtag band confronts heavy opposition and their own destinies in an aggressive pursuit of the French crown. Young, restless and ambitious, Henry V (Matthew Amendt) inherits a troubled crown and seeks to secure his position at home by turning the country's attention abroad, uniting England and France while briefly banishing the civil strife that will long outlive him. Expertly balancing the thrilling heroics of battle with the painful and complex reactions of men who are sometimes unsure of the justice of their causes, Shakespeare offers a rousing, fascinating story about the power of courage and the price of glory.
