Henry: Man and Monarch with Brett Brown

Thursday 7th July, 7.30pm: Plume School

 

Henry V, is one of Shakespeare’s most developed characters, appearing across three plays. Through Shakespeare’s retelling of history, we discover a lot about his reckless youth and mature kingship: the man and the Monarch. In this solo performance of Henry V we explore the growing realisation that finding a path that allows for both sides of the one character is not easy. Acclaimed actor Brett Brown, plays Henry as the newly crowned king, creating his power base in England through success at the battle of Agincourt while at the same time coming to terms with the loss of camaraderie with the common man, which he so enjoys. At the same time, through Shakespeare’s words, he narrates the progress from Royal Court to Agincourt to courtly love, as Henry finds himself, as well as finding his future.
