A young king's ambition reaches beyond the English court to the fields of France. Shakespeare’s classic history play is “the story of a young man’s rite of passage, a story of a nation dealing with the effects of war, a story that focuses on a nation unifying behind leadership for the greater good,” says Richmond.
