National Theatre Live: Henry V
Wed 6/15: 7:00p
Encore presentation following technical difficulties at the first screening.
Broadcast from stages in London to cinemas around the world, National Theatre Live provides a front-row seat to the hottest theatre productions in the UK. Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) plays the title role in Shakespeare’s thrilling study of nationalism, war and the psychology of power. Captured live from the Donmar Warehouse in London. Fresh to the throne, King Henry V launches England into a bloody war with France. When his campaign encounters resistance, this inexperienced new ruler must prove he is fit to guide a country into war.
Directed by Max Webster (Life of Pi), this exciting modern production explores what it means to be English and our relationship to Europe, asking: do we ever get the leaders we deserve?
