Henry V by William Shakespeare
Young Hal of Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Parts 1 & 2 sits upon the long sought-after throne of England. Now as King Henry, his sights are set on grander goals across the channel. The ambitious monarch goes “once more unto the breach” with his band of brothers to win the Battle of Agincourt, and win the heart of the French princess.
Actor Jordan Coughtry returns from last season’s triumphant performances to take on the title role.
