Fourth Monkey’s Of Land and Sea Classical Season 2019
Don’t miss our Classical Season performances this March, presented by our graduating Two Year Rep students. They will perform Shakespeare’s Henry V and Pericles in rep, as their first public showcase season of the year.
We warmly invite you to these performances, although this is a particularly useful opportunity to see our students’ work if you are applying or thinking of applying to train with Fourth Monkey.
There’s talk of war on England’s borders and in a bid to avoid a tax on the Church, the Archbishop of Canterbury persuades King Henry V to take the French crown. Against all odds Henry wins the Battle of Agincourt, a victory that will resonate through the ages.
Henry V is a classic History play, presenting the conundrum: did Shakespeare write it as a jingoistic vehicle for English nationalism, or a condemnation of a brutal war?
A magical, macabre adventure of strange lands, murderous intent, challenge and celebration, true love and three curmudgeonly fisherwomen.
In a tale rich with contemporary resonance Pericles, exiled by the fates, is forced to migrate across treacherous seas, embarking on a journey of self-discovery in search of safe haven, shelter, family and, finally, a home.
