When news arrives of the death of his father, King Henry IV, Prince Hal takes his place on the throne and becomes King Henry V. But one kingdom isn’t enough for the power-hungry monarch, who pursues a tenuous claim to the French throne. This involves leading his men into battle at Agincourt, where they somehow defeat the far greater French army, paving the way for King Henry to become heir to the French king.
The production opens the autumn/winter season at the Globe’s Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. With Britain more isolated than ever in the wake of Brexit and Russia's ruthless invasion of Ukraine continuing, Henry V's themes are as pertinent as ever.
