About

An incredible new production of Shakespeare’s epic tale of what it means to be a king.

Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) plays the title role in Shakespeare’s thrilling study of nationalism, war and the psychology of power. Captured live from the Donmar Warehouse, London.

Fresh to the throne, King Henry V launches England into a bloody war with France. When his campaign encounters resistance, this inexperienced new ruler must prove he is fit to guide a country to war.

Directed by Max Webster (Life of Pi), this exciting modern production explores what it means to be British and our relationship with Europe, asking: do we ever get the leaders we deserve?

“Kit Harington thrills and chills in this broodingly intelligent take on Shakespeare’s war play” – Time Out ★★★★

“Webster’s production is carefully structured to make the story as lucid as humanly possible.” – Time Out ★★★★

“A victory...” – The Daily Telegraph ★★★★

“Kit Harington is resoundingly good.” – The Times ★★★★

“Violent, devastating, and astonishing in its power … appalling in its violence.” – The I ★★★★
