This is Shakespeare OC's first history play in over 20 years, and like all of their work - it is a superb production. The acting - direction - accessibility to the text - "We will say that we were there on St. Crispin's Day!"

Treat yourselves...continued

I totally recommend this play. It is well staged and acted in the unique outdoor theatre in Garden Grove.
I also recommend the fun 7:30 p.m. pre-show, too. Come with a picnic dinner and enjoy it on the lawn while watching the pre-show.

The acting was first rate; the costumes were excellent; and, pre-theater entertainment was amusing. The theater has an intimate setting, plenty of free parking, and we were one row removed from the stage.

Plan to arrive early with a picnic...continued

Description

Shakespeare Orange County’s season starts off with Shakespeare’s history, Henry V.  The story of one of England’s most respected monarchs, Henry V, known for uniting  Britain, in a successful quest for the unification of both England and France. Set against  the backdrop of war, Shakespeare’s epic work questions the subject of war. 

The Bard’s examination of the dynasty of Britain’s very own House of Lancaster is known for its famous speeches, as well as a courageous king and his undaunted men’s pursuit of victory in a long shot battle against the French. After four centuries, Henry V  remains a shining star in the canon of world literature.  Directing the production is SOC company member Carl Reggiardo, with David Denman (NBC’s The Office) slated to play Henry.
