11 - 14th July 2019

“Cheerly to sea; the signs of war advance: No king of England, if not king of France...”

Let us ‘on your imaginary forces work’, as we bring the legendary Siege of Harfleur and Battle of Agincourt to life amongst the bookshelves.

We have partnered with the Bristol Shakespeare Festival, Bristol Libraries and South Gloucester Libraries to create a short tour of libraries around Bristol this July.

The show lasts approximately one hour with no interval and is suitable for audiences of all ages. Limited seats are available for all performances, so book yours now from the Bristol Shakespeare Festival box office. (Just scroll down until you see us, then choose the date/venue directly from the event list.)

 

Back by popular demand; Librarian Theatre's ‘Rapid Retelling' of Henry V returns once more unto the Bristol Shakespeare Festival this July. You can book tickets on the BSF website via this link.

 

Using only two actors, backed by a live original score, Henry V brings the Siege of Harfleur and Battle of Agincourt to life among the bookshelves of your local library.

 

Casting is decided on stage by the flip of a coin, so nobody knows who is to play King Henry V until the play has already begun.

 

This production originally launched at the Bristol Shakespeare Festival in July 2018, and is available for independent bookings by arrangement. If you're interested in hosting a production, download the information pack here and contact us to find out more.
