Chicago Shakespeare Theater Presents HENRY V, 4/29-5/15

Chicago Shakespeare Theater presents Henry V, directed by Christopher Luscombe, from April 29-June 15.

"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!" with William Shakespeare's Henry V, directed by celebrated British director Christopher Luscombe in his Chicago debut. In a rousing finale to the 2014 season, the play that inaugurated Chicago Shakespeare Theater in 1986 on the rooftop of Lincoln Park's Red Lion Pub comes to the Courtyard Theater for the first time.

Shakespeare's powerful history play explores the consequences of war and the capacity of language to inspire and transform. To unite a divided kingdom, England's King Henry decides to enforce his claim to the French throne. Confronted by the ferocity of war on the fields of Agincourt, this charming, freshly crowned monarch must prove his worth as a man and king in the ultimate test of his leadership. Leading the troops as the charismatic, young king is Harry Judge in the titular role.
