Henry V at The Barn


  • Barn Theatre Beeches Road Cirencester GL7 1BN (map)

Set in modern surroundings, this timeless Shakespeare classic is cleverly brought up to date and explores the conflict between tradition and modernity in Britain through the lens of a nation at war. 

 A clash of traditional and modern, the performance optimises atmospheric neon scenography to place the audience in the current moment whilst maintaining the beauty of Shakespeare’s language. The play cleverly preserve’s Shakespeare’s questioning of the symbolism of monarchy whilst investigating current British Nationalism and explores what it means to be a great leader.

A beautiful original score transforms Shakespeare’s work into a modern, mesmerising spectacle of tension and excitement.
