On your imaginary forces work.
Piece out our imperfections with your thoughts:
Into a thousand parts divide one man...
For 'tis your thoughts that now must deck our kings.
We're going to play a game. We're going to play Henry the Fifth. Remember him?
He's the one who went to war to try to take over France. I'll be the King. You can be his soldiers. Let's pretend this is the palace. Now it's a ship. Now it's a battlefield. Are you scared? Don't be scared. It's just pretend.
But war is dangerous. The losses can be terrible. The risk is great. What kind of man can carry this terrible responsibility?
A brand new production of Shakespeare’s brilliant meditation on war, and leadership, and the act of ‘playing’ itself. In the gorgeous surroundings of the Kibble Palace Glasshouse, six actors tell the story of this famous King; a story full of heroism and sacrifice, as a great man ruthlessly pursues the victory he will stop at nothing to achieve.
Please note that this is an indoor performance.
