From Shakespeare’s repertoire of famous history plays comes the story of two kingdoms, a young king, and an epic battle within the Hundred Years’ War. In early 15th century England, Henry V contemplates making a claim to rule France as well as England. Ideas quickly turn to action when France’s Dauphin insults the newly-anointed king, who reacts by rallying his troops to begin the invasion. Who will be victorious? Can peace between these two countries be achieved? This re-imagined classic is a co-production with Norfolk State University Theatre Company.
