As a part of ‘From The Thistle to The Rose’ – A six week celebration of all the best in creative theatre from this years 70th Edinburgh Festival hosted by Unfolds Theatre and The Rose Playhouse, Bankside. London.

Once more unto the breach,
dear friends, once more

Disgruntled with the fall in resources committed to the church, The Archbishop of Canterbury moves King Henry V, no longer the reckless young prince, to commit to reclaiming the French land which is said to rightly belong to England.

Goaded by the Dauphin of France, King Henry gathers every loyal man in England and begins his campaign into France.

But loyalty turns to hunger and courage to fear, as the troops begin to realise how vastly they are outnumbered.

His only choice is to come down from his royal pedestal and reach out to his band of brothers, man to man, in one of Shakespeare’s most powerful and uplifting plays.

An enterprising new venture, William Collect are proud to debut their Henry V with a stripped down, human production; bringing our audience onto the front lines and challenging the perception of what it is to be a Patriot in these uncertain times.

The Rose Playhouse, Bankside’s first theatre, 1587. The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use those at Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred meters away.

Running time is approximately 90 minutes with no interval.
