The King and his friends decide that they are going to take a vow to avoid women for three years in order to pursue a life of study.  As soon as they take their oath, the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive, and put to the test the lofty resolve of the men.
Shakespeare's witty and effervescent comedy takes us on a rollercoaster ride, as the characters wrestle and then untangle their unrealistic vows. Shakespeare also winks at us as he suggests the most interesting course of study is in fact  the endlessly fascinating relationships between men and women.

Henry V is the kingly sequel to Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2 where we meet Prince Henry (Hal) as a young and undisciplined man, frequenting bars and thieving with the charming, but dissolute, Falstaff. Henry V is the continuation of Hal’s story. The once undisciplined Prince has transformed into an ambitious and charismatic King who has inherited a troubled throne but sets out to conquer France and briefly unites it with England.
