A memorable experience, straight out of the history books, that takes us right to the edge.

This festive and moving version of Henry V that triumphantly intertwines the countries of England and France is parachuted down amongst the throes of World War I. The award-winning, young, British theatre company, Antic Disposition, sets the storyline in 1915. Soldiers at a clinic decide to distract patients by putting on a show.
English and French actors intermingle on stage in this powerful production. The complex relations between the two nations hold no secrets for Shakespeare who once again reveals his genius at probing the human soul. Man’s cruel destiny in the face of war resonates today as never before.

A truly amazing production of Henry V, performed by Antic Disposition, that leaves us spellbound and speechless. Terry Eastham, London Theatre 1
