Marking the centenary of the First World War Armistice, award-winning theatre company Antic Disposition present their critically acclaimed adaptation of Henry V in Chester Cathedral for three special performances.
Moving effortlessly between 1415 and 1915, Antic Disposition’s Henry V combines Shakespeare’s epic history play with original songs inspired by the poetry of AE Housman, in a powerful tribute to the young soldiers caught up in conflicts five centuries apart.
Performed by a talented international cast of British and French actors, the production celebrates the rich and often turbulent relationship between our two nations, from the Hundred Years War to the Entente Cordiale.
Tickets £25 – £35
Performance commences 7.30pm
