"We few. We happy few. We band of brothers, for he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother."

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Gemma Fairlie
Designed by Hugo Dodsworth
Movement Direction by Maggie Bain

Inspired by 1980s New York and Hollywood’s ongoing obsession with the Mafia – this is Henry V as you’ve never seen it before!

Henry runs a successful family business but he’s got greater ambitions. Setting his designs on
France’s burgeoning meat industry, the ruthless Henry needs this victory to make his name and earn respect. There will be war on the mean streets, and it’s going to get bloody.

Gemma Fairlie (Henry VI: Days of Rebellion, 2022 and Troilus and Cressida, 2021) returns to Bristol Old Vic Theatre School for another slick Shakespeare adaptation.

I've worked with visiting professionals this year that I never would have even dreamed of working with. It's been an amazing experience. Thomas Donnan, BA Professional Acting Student
