The Ohio State University presents the Royal Shakespeare Company’s First Encounters with Shakespeare North American Tour of The Famous Victories of Henry V.  The tour  visits Columbus and Mansfield, Ohio and Brooklyn, New York. RSC First Encounters with Shakespeare performances are distilled versions of Shakespeare plays that have been specially created for schools and family audiences.

The Famous Victories of Henry V follows notorious bad boy Prince Hal as he swaps his rebellious life on the streets of London for the battlefields of France to become one of the most famous kings in British history. The Famous Victories of Henry V brings together key moments from three great plays – Henry IV Parts I & II and Henry V – and the title is taken from an early play that may have inspired Shakespeare to write these stories. Using  Shakespeare's original language, this production is the perfect first encounter with Shakespeare's work for young people aged 8 and upwards.

This event is open only to K-12 students and their teachers. A teacher’s packet and curriculum guide can be found here. Information about bus subsidies can be found at this link.
