It’s 1415: King Henry V of England makes a grab for France. His cousin, French King Charles VI, sitzkriegs.

Henry and his army capture the french port city of Harfleur. Winter's looming, Henry's army is sick and hungry, and everyone just wants to go home. The French King has other ideas, and blockades their escape. They meet at Agincourt, on October 25, 1415.

The French outnumber the English five to one; pre-battle Gallic confidence arrows upwards. The underdogs win, decisively, thanks to the English longbow, and the rest is history.

Six hundred years after that battle, Henry V director Simon Herbert attributes his interest in this little-known history play to a guided tour of England's Warwick Castle he did as a small boy. "It grabbed my imagination, and I've wanted to direct Henry V ever since."

Presented by Iris Theatre Company and The Dark Room.
