About Henry V
Can the King of England hold his nerve to embrace his duty, command his men and lead his country to victory in France? Shakespeare’s great play of nationhood investigates the bloody horrors of war and the turbulence of a land in crisis.
★★★★★ 'Jude Law may look like an unlikely hero, but he doesn't put a foot wrong in Michael Grandage's thrilling production of Henry V' The Telegraph
★★★★ 'It is Law's complex portrait of Shakespeare's contradictory king that is far and away the most fascinating aspect of an efficient, well-managed production that doesn't aspire to the topical resonance of recent revivals' The Guardian
★★★★ 'In his leather jerkin and distractingly tight trousers, he cuts a commanding figure and JudeLaw here vividly blends the kind of natural charisma that can rouse tired troops with a brooding spiritual uneasiness that has its affinities with Hamlet' The Independent
Jude Law and Michael Grandage continue their collaboration that began with Hamlet in 2009. Law also appeared in the Donmar’s award-winning production Anna Christie, as part of Grandage’s final season as Artistic Director.
Latecomers to Henry V will not be admitted to the auditorium until the interval. Until that point they will be asked to watch the action on a screen in the bar.
