It has become something of a tradition for theatre to simultaneous revere works of the Bard, and find new resonances with modern life.
My guests today are Len Falkenstein (play director, Director of Theatre at UNB), Heidi Downing (King Henry V); Joshua Burke (Bardolph/Williams). We discuss the desire to stage Henry V, how the play reflects on modern life, and what the experience of representing royalty feels like.
TheatreUNB presents Henry V opens on April 5 at 7:30pm at Memorial Hall at UNB. This play only runs three nights until April 7.
