Celebrating the lasting legacy of Shakespeare in the 400th anniversary year of his death, the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre hosts a retelling of the most famous of English triumphs in battle starring Michelle Terry in the title role.

In Shakespeare’s dramatic account of the Battle of Agincourt during the English quest to win the French crown, Henry V rises to hold the mantle of one of the greatest warrior kings in history.

Delivering his infamous “we few, we happy few, we band of brothers” rallying call to his troops, his aura inspired those around him and dictated the course of a monumental victory. Events before, during and after the battle, including attempts to woo French princess, Catherine of Valois, are explored. 

Terry is an Olivier Award-winning actor who has played wealth of Shakespearean roles at the Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare’s Globe and National Theatre. Her other numerous stage credits include Cleansed at the National Theatre, Privacy at the Donmar Warehouse, Before The Party at the Almeida and Tribes at the Royal Court Theatre.

Henry V is directed by Donmar Warehouse Associate Director, Robert Hastie.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
