Henry the Fifth

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

What's the difference between a king and any other man? Kings need crowns and castles to prove their power, and so does Henry the Fifth. So when he starts to run out of money, all he can think about is that his neighbour's castle is bigger than his...

A long and terrible war ensues with huge costs on both sides - but that's royalty for you: always squabbling over one thing or another.

Belgian writer and theatremaker Ignace Cornelissen's playful re-interpretation of Shakespeare's Henry the Fifth follows his A Winter's Tale, which enjoyed great success at the Unicorn last year. This classic story re-imagined asks young audiences to think twice about the next time they get into an argument and make them question what they're fighting for.

Directed by Ellen McDougall.
