Henry V

by William Shakespeare adapted by Dave Baldwin


Cast Henry V

The grounds of Bishopswood house echoed to the noise and clamour of the battle of Agincourt when a cast of thirty young people staged Henry the fifth and a welcome break in the weather gave shelter to an enthusiastic audience of around a hundred.

Whilst some may feel that such a play demands an adult cast, 'the histories' offer acting opportunities to a larger number of players and also give some further insight into events that may otherwise simply be dates in a text book. They're also great fun to do!
