Experience Shakespeare’s bombastic Henry V
Performed in the Globe’s intimate, indoor Sam Wanamaker Playhouse for the first time, explore the bombastic, single-minded pursuit of Henry V, and what it means to be ‘British’.
A co-production by Shakespeare’s Globe and Headlong with Leeds Playhouse and Royal & Derngate, Northampton, directed by Headlong Artistic Director Holly Race Roughan (Corrina, Corrina, Liverpool Everyman, Metamorphoses, Sam Wanamaker Playhouse).
Henry V is booking from 10 November 2022 until 4 February 2023 at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Shakespeare’s Globe.
What is Henry V about?
Civil unrest, trouble with Europe, a monarchy in peril… it’s not 2022 but the late fifteenth century, and young, newly crowned Henry is eager to assert power at home and abroad.
When a humiliating message arrives from overseas, a bruised ego leads Henry to double down on a military invasion, at a devastating cost.
Who is in the cast of Henry V?

Written by William Shakespeare. Directed by Holly Race Roughan.
