We Happy Few Productions presents "Henry V"

We Happy Few Productions presents "Henry V" directed by Kerry McGee

The history books are filled with glamorous stories of war: brave leaders, glorious victories, underdog successes. But when you look at it through the eyes of an individual soldier, it's something else entirely: a job, an obligation, a way out, a burden, a death sentence, a mistake. You know Henry's story, now hear everyone else's.
