We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother Henry V

- St John's College Gardens(Entrance via Queen’s Road only)

The original "band of brothers." A young King Henry rallies his soldiers "unto the breach" on his way to becoming the most celebrated leader in England's history. But at what cost to his land, his subjects, and his conscience does he pursue the glories of his nation and his reign? How does his politically arranged marriage to a French princess become a true romance? Vividly exploring the enigmatic morality of leadership, Shakespeare's masterwork celebrates the power of language to shape destiny and summons to life a majestic age.

I loved the power, inventiveness and imagination of this highly original production. —Cambridge Evening News
