Henry IV is dead and Hal is King. With England in a state of unrest, he must leave his rebellious youth behind, striving to gain the respect of his nobility and people.
Laying claim to parts of France and following an insult from the French Dauphin, Henry gathers his troops and prepares for a war that he hopes will unite his country.
RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran continues his exploration of Shakespeare’s History Plays with Henry V performed in the 600th anniversary year of the Battle of Agincourt. Following his performance as Hal in Henry IV Parts I & II Alex Hassell returns as Henry V.
Henry V will be broadcast Live from Stratford-upon-Avon by the Royal Shakespeare Company on Wednesday 21 October, the same week as the anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt.
Shakespeare wrote Henry V in the first half of 1599.
