Young King Henry wages war on France. Tainted by the past crimes of his family and with enemies among his own ranks, he must face the difficult responsibilities of kingship, uniting his country and rousing his troops to battle at Agincourt.

A heroic coming-of-age story and a work of stirring patriotic oratory, Henry V also has darker undercurrents that ultimately question the price of military victory and the difficulty of maintaining future peace, something that resonates with the current end of WW1 commemorations.

Performances start at 7.30pm in the Walker Theatre at Theatre Severn and tickets cost £17.50 and £15 for students (Wednesday and Thursday only). A discount of £1 per ticket is available for block bookings of ten or more people.
