One of Shakespeare’s classic history plays, Henry V comes to the stage of the Open Air Theatre in Regent’s Park in the summer of 2016, giving audiences the unbeatable chance to see a renowned work and also offering the chance to celebrate the bard 400 years since he died in 1616.
Henry V originally formed part of a tetralogy, concluding a story that started in Richard II and continued through Henry IV Part I and Henry IV Part II, but it is also a worthy and fascinating play in its own right.
