Henry V (1964)
By William Shakespeare
Henry V returned to the Park for a second time in 1964 when it was directed by Artistic Director David William. Earlier that year the British and French governments announced their commitment to building the Channel Tunnel, which would connect the two countries. Our relationship with our French neighbours was a hot topic, and makes the programming of Henry V that summer particularly poignant. Dinsdale Landen was cast to play the role of King Henry the Fifth alongside Amanda Reiss as Princess Katherine.
