Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2) brings a warring king and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V.

Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task call into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership, delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead?

Seating is limited so please RSVP to bronxacf@parks.nyc.gov.
