See Henry V This July

Kentucky’s Shakespeare in the park is back and this July, they’re putting on an epic production of Henry V. Swordfights. A glorious battle. France vs. England, two centuries-old enemies. This play really has it all.

Shakespeare in the Park

William Shakespeare's "Henry V" is one of the histories, a play based on actual historical events. In this case, it's the famous Battle of Agincourt. This battle played out in 1415 between France and England during the Hundred Years' War.

Henry V Swordfights

Henry V, King of England, believes he is also the King of France, the rightful heir to the throne. He decides to invade. The actual King of France is Charles VI, who taunts Henry. The English army is badly outnumbered but they are full of heart. It is on the eve of battle that Henry delivers one of Shakespeare's most famous speeches. It contains the phrase "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers."

Yes, it's an exciting play. Go see it for free this summer at Louisville's famous Central Park, surrounded by the beautiful Old Louisville neighborhood. Henry V will be playing nightly beginning at 8 pm in the park starting on July 10.

Park a few blocks away and walk to the park. Old Louisville is definitely worth taking the time to explore.

Old Louisville is well known for its Victorian architecture. This neighborhood is made up of homes that were built at the end of the 1800s and the beginning of the 1900s.
