The Old Globe
“Once more unto the breach dear friends, once more!”
Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, one of the most important Shakespeare directors working today, returns to the Globe to take on the Bard’s thrilling history play. The year is 1415, and the young and reckless Prince Hal has left his wild partying days behind and matured into sober and thoughtful kingship. He defies the insults of the French royals and rallies a ragtag group of English soldiers to sail across the English Channel on a long-shot invasion of the mighty kingdom of France. Full of action and the electrifying language that marks Shakespeare at his height, Henry V is an unflinching look at warfare and power, and a rousing portrait of courage against all odds.
