BAM, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and The Ohio State University present

King and Country: Shakespeare’s Great Cycle of Kings
Henry V
Royal Shakespeare Company

“I kneel down and kiss the ground outside the RSC: this is just what the nation ordered.”
—The Telegraph (UK)
“Hassell gives a performance that’s deeply felt…thoroughly thoughtful and richly human.”
—The Times (UK)
“Gregory Doran’s imaginative production… allows the words to weave their spell”
—The Guardian (UK)

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.

Directed by Gregory Doran
