Led by director Ed Hall, the internationally acclaimed all-male company Propeller, is renowned for combining a rigorous approach to the text with an exciting, physical aesthetic, Propeller engages its audience’s imagination and brings fresh understanding to classic plays.
Propeller’s new production of Henry V tells the tale of the greatest British warrior in English folklore. In a time when nationalism is at its most dangerous and exciting and increasing numbers of British servicemen and women are seeing active service, Propeller brings its own unique take on one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays. Thrilling and deeply moving, Henry V marks the beginning of a journey that takes us from the corridors of Westminster to the fields of France in an evening of unforgettable power.
