What: Henry V by William Shakespeare
Who: The Royal Shakespeare Company
Where: The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-Upon-Avon
When: October 1st, 2015
Sometimes the Royal Shakespeare Company’s “devices” to make a particular production innovative and relevant to the modern audience don’t work. I’m amongst their sharpest critics when they don’t. Occasionally they do. Now whilst audiences members that I spoke to after the performance and during the interval were divided, I have to say I fall into the positive camp when it comes to this most recent production of Henry the Fifth.
