About the Show/Event

Henry V
Information for Henry V at The Barn, Cirencester (Play). Shakespeare's patriotic history play about the warrior-king. Henry V leads the English to victory at Agincourt and afterwards is taught the words of love by the French Princess, Katherine. A vivid depiction of the horrors of war and a romantic, fast-moving story. Set in modern surroundings, this timeless Shakespeare classic is cleverly brought up to date and explores the conflict between tradition and modernity in Britain through the lens of a nation at war. A clash of traditional and modern, the performance optimises atmospheric neon scenography to place the audience in the current moment whilst maintaining the beauty of Shakespeare's language. The play cleverly preserve's Shakespeare's questioning of the symbolism of monarchy whilst investigating current British Nationalism and explores what it means to be a great leader. A beautiful original score transforms Shakespeare's work into a modern, mesmerising spectacle of tension and excitement.
Performers Aaron Sidwell (Henry), Lauren Samuels (Katherine/Boy), Matt Ray Brown (Exeter/Orleans), Alicia Charles (Bardolph/Williams), Elin Philips (Fluellen), Adam Sopp (Pistol/Constable), Sarah Waddell (Queen of France), Jonathan Woolf (Nym/Dauphin).
