Shakespeare’s masterpiece about the turbulence of war and the art of peace portrays the romantic story of Henry’s campaign to recapture the English possessions in France. But the ambitions of this charismatic King are challenged by a host of vivid characters caught up in the real horrors of war.
The play which opened the first, and our new Globe with the words ‘O for a muse of fire’ celebrates the power of language, summoning into life courts, pubs, ships and battlefields within the ‘wooden O’.
