Venue: Bristol Central Library
Runtime: 70 mins
About the show:
Once more unto the breach, dear friends! Back by popular demand; Librarian Theatre's ‘Rapid Retelling' of Henry V returns to the BSF. Using only two actors, with an original score performed live by a musician, the hour-long show brings the Siege of Harfleur and Battle of Agincourt to life among the bookshelves of your local library.
The casting is decided live on stage by the flip of a coin, so not even the actors know who is to play King Henry V until the play has already begun.
