Antic Disposition presents HENRY V by William Shakespeare

Marking the centenary of the First World War Armistice, award-winning theatre company Antic Disposition present their critically acclaimed adaptation of Henry V in Exeter Cathedral for three special performances.

Moving effortlessly between 1415 and 1915, Antic Disposition’s Henry V combines Shakespeare’s epic history play with original songs inspired by the poetry of AE Housman, in a powerful tribute to the young soldiers caught up in conflicts five centuries apart.

Performed by a talented international cast of British and French actors, the production celebrates the rich and often turbulent relationship between our two nations, from the Hundred Years War to the Entente Cordiale.
