First time at a Shakespearean play, chose Henry V as it epitomizes the zeal and the uncertainty as the country headed towards the end of Elizabethan times. The actors were superb and I really enjoyed the show. The ending part of the show with the immigration officer I found in poor taste and nothing to do with Henry V. I'm still confused as to the reason of this political statement and really killed the evening for me.

We booked last minute and had excellent seats . The cast were brilliant and made the language sing. The stand in performer who compensated for a sick cast member gave a nuanced performance. Very entertaining.

The energy of the actors was electric! Unlike the beautiful candlelit space. It was such a privilege to watch these people work.

beautiful theatre, amazing production. One small gripe - the usher came and sat behind us and sniffed loudly all the way through the performance - it spoiled my enjoyment to be honest as was a very quiet performance.

Very good, found parts confusing especially having to be told, “that was the end.”

The setting was fantastic. The performances absolutely amazing and Henry’s monologues almost brought me to tears.

Came to the show for date night with my partner. About half an hour before the interval I fainted. Was stood at the back in the upper Gallery. The staff were amazing and gave us both seats for the second half.
