Directed by Edward Hall, William Shakespeare’s 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.

“Henry V is an absolute theatrical masterpiece.”

Internationally acclaimed all-male company, Propeller, return to the Belgrade following their highly praised productions of Richard III and The Comedy Of Errors. 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.

It’s Shakespeare rediscovered.

“…it is an absolute theatrical masterpiece.” *****

Paul Lucas-Scott, What’s On Stage

“The air buzzes with a testosterone far more persuasive than mere actorly swagger.” ****

Dominic Maxwell, The Times

“Played like a cross between Band Of Brothers (whose title was taken from this play) and an Iraq War movie, Henry V has the visceral impact of Mad Max.” *****

Neil Norman, Daily Express
