Shakespeare returns to Ludlow Castle for a stunning outdoor performance of his most famous History play, Henry V, set in this perfect location. It is 1415, and after succeeding to the throne of England, Henry is faced with the challenge of taking back land in France that he believes to be rightfully his. England is now at war, and what follows leads Henry and his army to that most famous of battles, Agincourt. But along the way, we meet hilarious characters such as Pistol and Fluellen to provide the humour...and yes there will be a fight with real live leeks. With a strong professional cast, this production promises to be a spectacle with great drama, laughter and sword fights! O, for a muse of Fire!
This is an outdoor production, it's advisable to bring warm clothing, a blanket, chairs, umbrellas, waterproofs, picnics, a smile and anything else necessary for an all weather production!
The Show Must Go On!
