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

Henry V

Critics and audiences enjoyed the production, although they did not come out to see it in droves, proving once again that any Shakespeare play with a Roman numeral in the title is most likely not going to reap tremendous financial rewards. But, hey, if we were in it for the money, we wouldn't be working in a Shakespeare theatre!
-- Lesley Currier



From the Playbill

I was 13 or 14 when I had my first contact with a Shakespeare play. World War II had been over just about a year when Laurence Olivier's film of HENRY V came to Marin County. A buddy of mine had heard about the movie and said it was all about knights in armour and big battle scenes.


I had only vaguely heard about William Shakespeare, but there I was, sitting in the El Camino Theatre on Fourth Street in San Rafael. It took me about ten or fifteen minutes to pick up on what at first I thought was the strangest sounding English I had ever heard, but then the magic of Shakespeare took over and I was transported to the "vasty fields of France" and was totally captivated by Shakespeare the writer and Olivier the actor.... Shakespeare always takes us on a journey of self exploration and makes us face our personal battles: 'We few, we happy few, we Band of Brothers.'"
-- James Dunn
