Critic reviews

Sarah Amankwah's majestic performance invigorates a timely if slightly flat production of Shakespeare's war play

The Stage

It's left to individual performances to really brighten the evening

WhatsOnStage

Sarah Amankwah outshines a wobbly ensemble

The Telegraph

Hot like gunpowder

Exeunt

Sarah Amankwah makes a majestic Henry in a valiant if uneven trilogy

The Guardian

Henry IV Parts 1 and 2 and Henry V are performed by a versatile cast, led by Sarah Amankwah’s charismatic Hal

Financial Times

An explosive first half gives way to a sloggy second, but Sarah Amankwah makes for a brilliant young king

Time Out

As they so often do with their productions, the Globe presents Henry V as a larger-than-life epic, fitting for its stage – this is the most fun you can have watching Shakespeare

The Upcoming

Henry V is all set to bring home the hero and although this production delivered the goods, there was a casualness to the movement and vocal delivery that may be have been a directorial choice.
