The Breach

Written by William Shakespeare

Adapted by Apricity Theatre

History is written by the victors. But what about the people whose blood those victories were won with?

King Henry is a violent man and a threat too great for France to ignore as his armies plunder their churches and burn their towns to the ground. Henry’s soldiers struggle to come to terms with the blood they have shed in the name of their king, while Princess Katherine prepares herself for the arranged marriage she knows is on its way. With ‘explosive’ battles (Theatre Bath) and thumping beats, this new adaptation of Henry V explores the darker side of Shakespeare’s story through the eyes of the people used and forgotten by history.
