Henry V is coming to Downtown Rockville!
A free, family friendly, 1-hour adaptation of Henry V
August 7 at 7:00pm & August 8 at 2:00pm at the Rockville Public Library
“This show is a one-hour adaptation that is set on the battlefield of Agincourt as the few sick and famished English soldiers take on the vast French army. It’s a coming of age story that focuses on prince Hal and his journey to find his identity as a king and overcome the shadows of his youth. It’s a metaphor for all that Downtown Rockville can become. It will be a great show for anyone who has never seen Shakespeare before or someone who had only read it in high school. The idea is to take Shakespeare off of the pedestal and make it not only relatable but fun for the whole family.”
