Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

Henry V, King of England

Directed by James Dunn

Henry the Fifth

Producer’s Perspective:

Henry V was only the second time we had attempted a Shakespeare history play. It was also our first time working with Director Jim Dunn. Jim was at that time perhaps the one person in Marin who had directed more Shakespeare productions than anyone else. As the long-time head of the College of Marin drama program and the Artistic Director of The Mountain Play, Jim had worked with and influenced just about everyone who ever did theatre in Marin. Our first season of three plays --our tenth anniversary season – with more available directing slots, it seemed a natural to ask Jim to direct. Robert Currier called him "the Pete Rose of Marin directors (Most Lifetime Hits.)"
