King and Country: Shakespeare’s Great Cycle of Kings
Royal Shakespeare Company
Reckless youth morphs into kingly ambition as the once-wayward Prince Hal takes full command of the crown. In the Royal Shakespeare Company’s culminating chapter of King and Country, Alex Hassell (The Caretaker, 2012 Winter/Spring) reprises his role from Henry IV, bringing infinite nuance and humanity to the mettle-proving sovereign: wrenching self-scrutiny on the eve of battle, tongue-tied ineptitude in the face of love, lingering guilt in the wake of fatherly sin. Director Gregory Doran goes once more unto the breach in the final play of Shakespeare’s epic cycle staged to mark the 600th anniversary of Henry V’s decisive victory in the Battle of Agincourt.
