Henry V Tickets London Theatre

Henry V Tickets

Performed in the intimate, indoor Sam Wanamaker Playhouse for the first time

Tickets from £5


Civil unrest, trouble with Europe, a monarchy in peril… Experience Shakespeare’s unnervingly relevant Henry V in a production that offers a different perspective on England’s hero.

Henry, the young and newly crowned king, is impatient to assert control over the people of England. Having received a humiliating gift from overseas, his bruised ego leads him to double down on a military invasion abroad in a bid to expand his green and pleasant land. But at what devastating cost?

Witness Henry’s bombastic pursuit of power, throwing into question what it really means to be English.

A production by Shakespeare’s Globe and Headlong, with Leeds Playhouse and Royal & Derngate, Northampton, directed by Headlong’s Artistic Director Holly Race Roughan (Corrina, Corrina, Liverpool Everyman; Metamorphoses, Shakespeare’s Globe).

Content guidance: This production contains moments of graphic violence, references to sexual assault and strong language.

Critic reviews

Subversive interpretation that doesn't play by the rules

· The Stage

Oliver Johnstone mesmerises as Henry V

· The Observer

Anatomy of a violent, murky world of leadership

· The Arts Desk

Finely tuned production

· The Guardian

Thrillingly retooled as a Macbeth-style psychodrama

· The Telegraph

Fresh, vivid and intense

· Evening Standard

The fine ensemble is particularly impressive with the production's more physical passages

· WhatsOnStage

Chilling anatomy of one man’s slide into savagery

· London Theatre

A wholly timely and considered deconstruction of a classic play

· Everything Theatre

An interesting retelling offering many moments of excitement and intensity

· The Upcoming

There are moments of visual poetry

· The Times

It zips along a treat, has a fistful of great new jokes and there is something impressively irreverent

Suggests a number of progressive, contemporary ideas

· Broadway World
