On the morning of October 25th 1415, a small band of English soldiers rose to face their almost certain death on the field of Agincourt. Outnumbered three-to-one by the massed forces of France, England’s King Henry V is confronted with the brutal realisation that there is no glory to be found in the theatre of war, only death.
Shakespeare’s epic, complex and moving history of a young King’s triumph against all odds is brought roaring back to life this winter, in a rousing new production from London, England’s internationally-acclaimed Malachite Theatre and Edmonton’s own Grindstone Theatre.
Featuring a fantastic gender-balanced cast of Albertan actors, an evocative new live score, and set in the stunning surroundings of Old Strathcona’s Holy Trinity Church, Henry V promises to be the Shakespearean event of the year!
This production will be the first time a female actor has played Henry V on the Canadian stage.
