About the show

The Rogue and Peasant Players presents William Shakespeare's Henry V, the historical English drama of its title character. More…

King Henry V ascends to the throne of England following the death of his father at the beginning of the play. The King soon makes a claim to parts of France based on some distant ancestral ties. When Dauphin, prince of France responds insultingly to Henry's claim, King Henry V orders England to invade France and the two nations soon find themselves at war.

Banal, Epic, Quirky, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if You like the notion of a rag-tag, slightly uneven group of amateurs as "flat unraised spirits" in this mostly well-directed play.

Don't see it if You need your Shakespeare well-spoken... at least in English; the French scene is great! You want to laugh in Eastcheap, or to root for Hal.
