Live Screening of “Henry V”
July 7, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm$20
Hammer Theatre Center continues its National Theatre Live (NT Live) series with a screening of William Shakespeare’s thrilling “Henry V,” starring Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) and directed by Max Webster (Life of Pi). Captured in front of a live audience at London’s Donmar Warehouse, this modern-dress “Henry V” shines a light on nationalism, war, and the psychology of power, which many critics note vividly echoes the current conflict in Ukraine. Harington, known to millions worldwide as Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow, here exhorts soldiers to follow “Once more into the breach, dear friends” in this modern adaptation, as his King Henry grows from a boyish partyer to a power-hungry leader launching England into a bloody war with France. When his campaign encounters resistance, this inexperienced new ruler must prove he is fit to guide a country into war.
