Henry V is one of Shakespeare’s most famous history plays. It is based on the life of King Henry V of England and centers around events before and after the battle of Agincourt in 1415, during the 100 Years War.

Henry V is the kingly sequel to Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2 where we meet Prince Henry (Hal) as a young and undisciplined man, frequenting bars and thieving with the charming, but dissolute, Falstaff. If you saw last summer’s Classical Acting Academy’s production of Henry IV, Part 1 at The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre, you will enjoy the continuation of Hal’s story. The once undisciplined Prince has transformed into an ambitious and charismatic King who has inherited a troubled throne but sets out to conquer France and briefly unites it with England.
