Shakespeare Reading Series
Prince Hal is now King Henry V. There are many questions.
Can the man change from his wild youth to lead the country?
What will the King learn when he, in disguise, talks to the soldiers before the major battle of Agincourt against the French?
What will he say to them in the morning when they prepare to fight vastly outnumbered?
