Pocket Henry tells the heroic tale of England’s greatest warrior. Watch how Henry V prepares to lead England into battle against a mighty French opponent with his band of brave, loyal brothers. Sharp English weapons combine with Shakespeare’s noble words to bring our history to life in this pocket-sized show for young audiences. In a world where loyalty and courage are put to the test, will Henry V and England prevail and win the day?

After their phenomenal international tour of Henry V, Propeller brings this legendary English story to the stage in a pocket, sixty minute reimagining.
Under the direction of Edward Hall, Propeller is an all-male company that brings Shakespeare’s texts to life with their trademark clear, humorous and enlightening style.

After an enticing hour, young audiences are invited into the performance space with the actors to express their response to the show in the freest way possible.
Pocket Henry provides an inspiring introduction not only to Shakespeare, but also to highest quality English theatre around. Grab your sword and shield and join in!
