Final Week for HENRY V and AS YOU LIKE IT at Prague Shakespeare Company
Prague Shakespeare Company gives a special ONE NIGHT ONLY reading of one of the most successful productions in our history: Henry V. Presented in a unique 75 minute format this staged reading is the penultimate canon event of our historic PSC400 Season.
Last seen in 2013 and the recipient of numerous Houston Press Theatre and BroadwayWorld Houston Theatre Awards including Best Production, Best Director, Best Lead Actor and Costumes - this unique revival performance brings many of your favorite PSC artists on the stage to celebrate Shakespeare's unforgettable play about courage, leadership and honor in the face of overwhelming odds.
It's the early fifteenth century, and King Henry V has just assumed the English throne. When the Dauphin sends Henry an insulting message in response to England's claims to certain parts of France, Henry decides to invade. The war is ultimately decided at the Battle of Agincourt, at which the English are outnumbered by the French five to one. What happens in the end is nothing short of a miracle...
Partners of the production are Kolowrat-Krakowsky family, the City of Prague, International School Prague, the British Embassy Prague, and Barrandov Studio a.s. Prague Shakespeare Company thanks JUDr. Dominika Kolowrat-Krakowska, Maximilian Kolowrat-Krakowsky and Francesca Kolowrat-Krakowska for their selfless and generous support.

As You Like It, one of Prague Shakespeare Company's most Popular Productions last seen in 2014 at the Estates Theater, returns to Divadlo Kolowrat as the official conclusion to PSC's groundbreaking and unprecedented PSC400 Season. Performed in English and reuniting a multi-national cast of professional theatre artists from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, France, America, Australia, England and Canada, As You Like It is one of William Shakespeare's most beloved and vibrant comedies. Sparkling with wit, this jubilant tale of a girl disguised as a boy - who tempts the man she loves to fall for the boy she isn't - is flavored with all the longing and pain of everyone's first big romance. Uplifting, awe-inspiring and immense fun, Shakespeare's wondrous comedy is a joyous celebration of the transformative power of love.
