About this show

Obie Award-winning director Robert O'Hara brings a warring king and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with the Mobile Unit's spring production of Henry V. Insulted by the regent of France, Britain's King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry's charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task call into question the king's true motives and direction. Resonating through the centuries — whenever there may be a kingdom for a stage and royalty to act — Shakespeare's drama about invasion, ego, and leadership delves into history's thorniest questions: What makes people worthy of wearing a crown, and what do they owe those they lead?
