Henry V DVD (Shakespeare's Globe)

Capped by one of the most famous speeches ever written, Shakespeare’s Henry V recalls a truly great English victory. With comic sub-plots to be found among Henry’s soldiers, the production boasts some terrific performances – including Sam Cox as the ‘splendidly unhinged’ Pistol (Daily Telegraph). In the title role is Jamie Parker, who ‘casts such a rapt spell that you feel the entire audience would rise up to march behind him’ (The Independent). Filmed in High Definition and true surround sound.

‘Henry V was written for mass appeal, a patriotic celebration of what it is to be English for better or worse. Dromgoole’s production plays to these strengths and as such marks a cultural high point in the 2012 celebrations.’ – The Stage
