By William Shakespeare

England’s in tumult and who ascends the throne but playboy prince Hal—an untested royal who spent his youth slumming around London. Now crowned King Henry V, he must win the respect of a nation and lead his country to greatness in an epic battle with archnemesis France. Henry gathers his troops and marches abroad only to find himself outmanned, outgunned and outmatched. In the face of death, Henry must also face himself. Can he become the king his country needs? In the annual season tradition, Jobsite reboots Shakespeare for modern times, taking Henry’s timeless tale and setting it to an original, blistering industrial score. High-def video transforms Shakespeare’s work into a modern, mesmerizing spectacle of tension, nationalism and excitement.
