Photo Flash: First Look at Antic Disposition's HENRY V

Recent RADA graduate Freddie Stewart has been cast in the title role in Shakespeare's HENRY V, in a site-specific production that marks award-winning Antic Disposition's 10th anniversary. Antic Disposition has won critical acclaim for staging visually striking productions in spectacular historic buildings, including Middle Temple Hall. HENRY V, boasting a joint British and French cast, will be staged in London's ancient Temple Church from tonight 24 August - Saturday 5 September 2015. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Freddie Stewart already has several theatre, television and film credits to his name, most recently playing Cassio in Othello at Shakespeare's Globe. The rest of the joint British/French cast are: Floriane Andersen, Maurice Byrne, Marius Hesper, Andrew Hodges, Alex Hooper, Victor Klein, Mark Middleton, James Murfitt, Dean Riley, Louise Templeton, Geoffrey Towers.

Set in a French military hospital in 1915, HENRY V marks both the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt and the ongoing centenary of the First World War. Using fast-paced storytelling, original songs and live music, the uplifting production celebrates the rich and turbulent relationship between Britain and France, from the Hundred Years War to the Entente Cordiale.

HENRY V is directed by Ben Horslen and John Risebero, who also designs, with songs and musical direction by Christopher Peake, additional music by James Burrows and lighting design by Tom Boucher.

Before arriving in London, HENRY V was performed in 10 open-air locations in France -- one of only a handful of productions of the play ever to be performed in the country.

HENRY V runs Monday - Saturday at 7.45pm and Saturday matinees at 3pm. Press night is tonight, Monday 24 August at 7.45pm at Temple Church, London EC4Y 7BB (Nearest tube: Temple or Blackfriars). Tickets: £20 - £40. Box Office: 0333 666 3366; www.anticdisposition.co.uk.
