Free Shakespeare in the Park presents 'HenryV'San Francisco, CA SF Shakes
Bring your family, friends, a blanket and a picnic to enjoy our 30th Anniversary production of 'Henry V' - the Bard’s exciting tale about the rise of a young king and the glories and costs of war. Shows are Saturdays, Sundays, and Labor Day Monday at 2:00 pm. The show, including intermission, runs about 2.5 hours. As always, no ticket or reservation is needed.
This coming-of-age tale chronicles the transition of young slacker Prince Hal to become King Henry V. As a new king he must prove he is able and ready to rule. With the invasion of France the young king struggles with self-doubt, sagging morale, cruel treachery, and the crazy antics of his old friends Nym and Pistol! Ultimately, all meet at the famous Battle of Agincourt and the English, though greatly outnumbered, win back their land thanks to Henry’s stirring leadership. Victorious in war, Henry now desires the heart of French Princess Katherine. Confident in charm – if not the French language – Henry ultimately triumphs in uniting the Kingdoms in marriage and returns home a true king.
