Henry V
Bell Shakespeare presents
Henry V

1 Jul 2014 to 12 Jul 2014

AMID A BOMBING RAID IN A WAR TORN CITY...

Damien Ryan’s vision for Henry V is inspired by a true story – in 1941, for 71 consecutive nights during the Belfast Blitz, a group of boys trapped in a bunker rehearsed a new play each week and would then perform it for others in the shelter. This production explores the rite of passage that violence and conflict offer as a threshold to manhood. It confronts the fact that – for all the horrors of war – true courage and brotherhood can inspire remarkable achievements.

In this gripping new Henry V, a talented young cast tell the story of a king who unites his ‘band of brothers’ and a nation with his eloquent words and ideas, his triumphs and humanity. When the battle is won, this production will leave you feeling uplifted and exhilarated with the belief that the impossible is possible.
