Presented by the Pop-up Globe King’s Company.
“We would not die in that man's company / That fears his fellowship to die with us.”
The Pop-up Globe King’s Company presents Shakespeare’s immortal and inspirational Henry V.
A young man faces up to the hard realities of war and loss as he leads his ragtag army in a harrowing campaign on foreign soil. As his friends die and the chances of victory fade, he must conquer his demons on a bloody battlefield that will go down in history: Agincourt.
Set in both 1625 and 1415, this new production uses historically accurate costumes from both periods to recreate one of the bloodiest victories in English history live on the Pop-up Globe stage, including extensive Jacobean special effects and full armoured combat performed by an all-male cast of seventeen.
The Pop-up Globe King’s Company is Pop-up Globe’s resident all-male company of actors and live musicians, working with world experts to bring you the authentic shock of the old: the effect of Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space and style for which they were written.
