Henry V

Written by William Shakespeare

August 6th - September 1st
Directed by Paul Mullins 
In the Festival Glen

With the death of his father, young King Henry must abandon his wasted youth and transform into a leader of men. His country embroiled in bitter civil war and his people restless and dissatisfied, Henry launches a daring invasion that climaxes in the fateful battle of Agincourt. Weakened and outnumbered, the English face near certain defeat, but Henry’s inspirational leadership spurs a reversal of fortune and turns a man into a legend. Henry V crowns SSC’s three-play exploration of Hal from ne’er-do-well prince to fabled king.

Henry V marks Artistic Director Marco Barricelli's return to the SSC stage.

“From this day to the ending of the world, but we in it shall be remembered, we few, we happy few, we band of brothers…” – Act IV, Scene 3
