William Shakespeare’s “Henry V” Live Performance Review

By Mary Shin

On Friday, February 16, 2018, I had the opportunity to watch William Shakespeare’s “Henry V” for free!

 (Who doesn’t love free stuff!)

With EduCare, there was pizza 🍕 and then a long bus ride to the aNoiseWithin theatre. 

RFK high school students basically had a play just for them this day. When I first arrived at the location, I was ecstatic!

Everything about the place was neat, clean, and modern. The stage was small compared to many other plays but the actors and the actions made the limited area seem not so small (I didn’t know the stair/wall could move like that).

(The wall behind them move!)

The storyline was clear about the tense warring years between England and France during 1398-1485.

All the actors were fantastic and extremely professional but if I had to choose an actor that stood out, it would have to be the person who played Dauphin’s character; his energy and expressions
were engaging and shocking (especially in the scene of him sharpening his knife on the floor).

 

Kasey Mahaffy played the Dauphin (far right):

Oh, and the romance was spot on as the audience seemed to be “wowed” the most at the kiss scene of King Henry V and Princess Katherine.

At the way end of the play, there was a chance for all the student that came with EduCare to ask the actors any questions they had and I thought this whole experience was an honor. I am grateful to have been able to go to this play.

11/10 would go to more future plays.

Here’s a trailer:
