Henry V

By William Shakespeare, directed by Matt Sciple

Performing at The Crane Theater

We happy few.

Shortly after he becomes King Henry V, former playboy prince Hal decides to prove his seriousness and increase his popularity with conquests abroad. Shakespeare’s superb history play brings political intrigue and the thrill of battle to the stage. This timeless story, retold during an election year, reflects even more potently on today’s global stage.
