Enjoy a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry V at Cirencester’s Barn Theatre this summer, starring EastEnders’ Aaron Sidwell as Henry.
Taking place from Wednesday 22 May to Saturday 22 June 2019, the play has been cleverly brought up-to-date to explore the conflict between tradition and modernity in Britain during a time of war.
Expect a welcome contrast between the classic beauty of Shakespeare’s prose paired with a modern backdrop, that is said to bring audiences into the current moment.
The play retains Shakespeare’s themes that question the symbolism of the monarchy while delving into current British nationalism and the ideas behind what it takes to be a great leader.
Audiences can also enjoy beautiful original scores that bring tension and excitement to create a truly mesmerising spectacle of The Bard’s work.
