Babes With Blades Theatre Company and an all-female cast present Shakespeares tale of a newly-anointed king with a lot to atone for... and a lot to prove.
Ascending the throne of England after the death of his father, young Henry V faces suspicion from within his country and pressure from without. Hoping to unite his kingdom and ensure its future security, he embarks on a risky campaign to conquer France. The odds are against him... but will his people rally around him? And when two rival nations each claim the God-given right to rule the other, will human determination be enough to win the day?
