Shakespeare’s masterpiece concerning the turbulence of war and the arts of peace tells 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. Henry V which, in 1599, opened the original Globe with the words ‘O for a muse of fire’, celebrates the power of language to bring to life courts, pubs, ships and battlefields within the ‘wooden O’ – and beyond.

Following the success of Twelfth Night at the David Lean, we’re very pleased to be able to feature this special screening of Henry V, also produced by London’s Globe Theatre. The handsome, period revival of Shakespeare’s most stirring history play is an imaginative, inspiring interpretation from director Dominic Dromgoole. Led by the charismatic Jamie Parker (History Boys, Silent Witness) as the hard but fair young king, and with a strong supporting cast, this fine production really packs a punch…

Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote.
This performance, recorded at The Globe in 2013, revisits their award-winning Twelfth Night of 2002. An all-male Original Practices production explores the clothing, music, dance and settings possible in the Globe of around 1601.
The superb performances include Rylance’s Olivia and Fry’s hilarious Malvolio.
