One of the most profound and personal meditations on power, Shakespeare's Henry V is the ultimate -- maybe even the original -- underdog war story. Think 300, Braveheart and Saving Private Ryan, but this piece of historical fiction was written around 1599. Formerly the high-living Prince Hal, young King Henry V rallies his "band of brothers" to recover territories from the French. Henry also woos the beautiful Princess Katherine of France, winning both her heart and the Battle of Agincourt against considerable odds. In the process, he learns that leadership means much more than just wearing the crown. See this exciting all-female production from Babes With Blades when Henry V makes its way to Chicago's City Lit Theater.
