Production of Henry V set in WWI comes to Holy Trinity, Stratford-upon-Avon


Antic Disposition’s poignant production Henry V comes to Holy Trinity as part of its cathedral tour from 12th to 16th November.

Performed by a company of 14 French and British actors, it is set in a French military hospital in 1915 – 500 years after the Battle of Agincourt.

Antic Disposition’s reimagining follows two groups of wounded French and British soldiers as they raise their spirits by staging their own production of Henry V.

This unique adaptation combines Shakespeare’s epic history play with original songs and live music inspired by the poetry of AE Housman.

Leading the company of actors from both sides of the Channel, Nathan Hamilton (As You Like It, Shared Experience; After the Dance, Theatre by the Lake) will make his Antic Disposition debut as King Henry V. To book tickets call 0333 666 3366.
