William Shakespeare’s captivating and beloved Henry V will shine as the finale to the 2014 Chicago Shakespeare Theater season. The famed coming-of-age play is directed by Christopher Luscombe, whose work has been featured at the Royal Shakespeare Company, and will run through June 15. Watch as a youthful monarch proves his worth as a man and as a king in the face of war.
A dynamic company, the CST has a reputation for showcasing bold, vibrant, epic, and unforgettable productions that reflect Shakespeare’s genius. CST is also the leading producer of international work in Chicago and has toured its own plays abroad in Africa, Asia, Australia, and Europe.

Henry V will take center stage in the Courtyard Theater for the first time. Inspired by the design of Shakespeare’s Globe Theater in London, the Courtyard Theater seats 500 and has three seating levels that wrap around the stage, providing an up-close-and-personal interaction between the actors and the audience.
