The cast for the Old Red Lion Theatre's Rep Season of Henry V and The Revenger's Tragedy is as follows: Mark Field, Steve Fortune, Nicholas Kime, Jack Morris, Christine Oram and Henry Regan.
A newly appointed leader guided by religious conviction.
A threat to peace.
A questionable case for war.
Does nothing ever change?
This production is a critical response to, and examination of the second Iraq war, following the recent Iraq Inquiry - set in a world of the 24-hour news cycle, political spin, prisoner abuse and UN Resolutions.
In this Jubilee and Olympic year, join us for a radical new production of one of Shakespeare's most celebrated plays - a play synonymous with English patriotism. But at what cost?
Directed by Henry Filloux-Bennett.
Part of the Old Red Lion Theatre Rep Season.
"This is Shakespeare, but not as we know it...
Totally enthralling throughout."
"If you haven't seen Henry V, go. If you've
already seen a production of Henry V, do anyway."
The Oxford Student
“The play’s fiery, blood-soaked rhetoric sounds
disturbingly like the language of shock and awe”
“As subtle as a Scud missile…it hits the target”
“Not Henry V as you will have seen it…
thought-provoking definitely worth a watch”
“Modern, excellent, highly original”
“Excellently edited…it successfully subverts the patriotism that
Shakespeare spurred and reminds us of the horrors of war”
"Very unsettling and thought-provoking"
