OBIE Award winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of HENRY V.
Insulted by the regent of France, England’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts his soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task calls into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating from across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and princes to act--Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership, delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a man worthy of wearing the crown, and what does he owe the people he leads?
THE MOBILE UNIT is made possible with the support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation, The Ford Foundation, The Stavros Niarchos Foundation, The Tow Foundation, and Bloomberg Philanthropies. Additional support provided by The Estée Lauder Companies Inc. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
