About Henry V - Barbican Theatre

Henry IV is dead and Hal is King. With England in a state of unrest, he must leave his rebellious youth behind, striving to gain the respect of his nobility and people.

Following productions of Richard II (2013/14) and Henry IV Parts I & II (2014/15), Gregory Doran and the RSC creative team continue their exploration of Shakespeare’s History plays. They return with the conclusion of this epic tale in the 600th anniversary year of the Battle of Agincourt. Having played Prince Hal in Henry IV Parts I & IIAlex Hassell is back as the newly crowned Henry V in the final part of the tetralogy.
