“[…] the actors continued their extraordinary performance, and the audience sat under their umbrellas, mesmerized by Harry the King and his loyal crew.”

– Victoria Shinkaruk, Montreal Rampage

The Play

The adventurous tale of a rebellious prince who grows up to become one of England’s most revered kings. Adapted from William Shakespeare’s historical plays Henry IV pt. 1, pt. 2 and Henry V, this story follows Prince Henry, who seems to be doing everything a young prince shouldn’t. But when he’s called upon to become king and ‘pay the debt he never promised,’ he rises to the occasion, uniting a country and inspiring a nation.
