Shakespeare’s Hundred Years War history play is transformed into a schoolboy fight between King Henry and the French Dauphin - here called Nigel.
In a set designed by James Button, a fashion veteran who spent several years working with Vivienne Westwood, France is turned into a vast sandpit. The conflict of Shakespeare's is conveyed thorugh balloon armies that knock down the very sandcastles they’re fighting over.
Cornelissen’s Henry the Fifth is a morality tale about the futility of war, with an empowered French queen Katherine and enough sword fighting to get every tiny child’s heart racing.
