RSC, Recorded Live
A classic play by William Shakespeare
Director: Gregory Doran
Starring: Alex Hassell
RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran presents his bold new vision of Shakespeare’s historical masterpiece. Henry IV is dead and Hal is King. With England in a state of unrest, he must leave his rebellious youth behind, striving to gain the respect of his nobility and people. Laying claim to parts of France and following an insult from the French Dauphin, Henry gathers his troops and prepares for a war that he hopes will unite his country.
This year’s RSC Live series continues with a gripping new interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic, performed in the 600th year of the Battle of Agincourt. The production is helmed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Donan and Alex Hassell returns to the role of Henry V following his acclaimed performances in Henry IV Parts I & II.
