American Shakespeare Center "Henry V"
The story of England’s hero-king and the greatest upset in European military history is Shakespeare’s finale to his great history plays. More than that, Henry V- at once touching, heroic, savage, and comic - explores the nature of greatness and its connection to theatre; and, perhaps more than any other of Shakespeare’s works, it makes the audience part of the story.

By re-creating Renaissance conditions of performance, the ASC explores its repertory of plays for a better understanding of these great works and of the human theatrical enterprise past, present, and future.
