"For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother…"

Shakespeare’s epic exploration of war, brotherhood, and what a man will sacrifice to become one of history’s greatest leaders, is given a transformative touch by leading producers SHAKEITUP! and Sharu Loves Hats. Turning the Shakespearean tradition of all-male casts on its head and presenting a new and contemporary vision, this innovative version of a traditionally testosterone-driven Henry V features a massive all-woman cast of New Zealand’s finest female talent.

Henry V, 26-year-old King of England, leads his rag-tag army on a bloody adventure in France.

In Shakespeare’s theatrical masterpiece the audience is transported from the intimate intrigues and politics of royal courts to epic battles between mighty armies, following a young King destined to carry the weight of two countries on his shoulders as he secures the future of both – and in so doing, comes of age.

Directed by Grae Burton, former Tour Manager and member of The Ugly Shakespeare Company, and former Artistic Director for the Nelson/Tasman Summer Shakespeare Tour, and Natalie Beran, Shakespeare's Globe International Actors' Fellow 2015, and Program Manager for The Actors' Program, Auckland.

“A great ensemble of both seasoned and emerging actors […] acting talent at its best.”– Theatrescenes.co.nz on a previous SHAKEITUP! production.

Presented by SHAKEITUP! and Sharu Loves Hats, with support from the Wallace Arts Trust.

"Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines"

Pop-up Globe is an open air amphitheatre and in the Groundlings under the sun it can get quite hot. We recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, a water bottle and even a handheld fan. Umbrellas are not permitted inside the yard so in case of rain please bring a raincoat!

Pop-up Globe Auckland is a full-scale working temporary replica of the second Globe Theatre originally built by Shakespeare and his company in 1614, the result of groundbreaking international academic research. With a steel frame ‘skinned’ in plywood the Pop-up Globe fuses cutting-edge scaffold technology with 400-year-old designs and superb contemporary performances to create an immersive 360 degree experience unlike any other.
