The Porters of Hellsgate take on Shakespeare’s most famous play about war upon their unworthy scaffold: The Whitmore Theatre. Embracing The Chorus’ initial warning as to the inadequacies of his company’s resources to “bring forth so great an object”, this Henry V will be brought forward with the grittiness and edge the Porters have become known for. Within this “wooden O” both cast and audience will be taken in to the unapologetically theatrical journey of King Henry’s invasion and conquest of France.

Henry V will star and be directed by Porters’ Artistic Director Charles Pasternak, who played the title role with Shakespeare Santa Cruz this past summer. The production will also feature Leon Russom as the iconic Chorus.

Henry V opens Saturday, February 15th at 8pm at The Whitmore Theatre, 11006 Magnolia Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601. The production will run Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm, with Sunday matinees at 2pm*, through Saturday, March 29th, 2014, closing the extended seven week run. Henry V will run approximately 2.5 hours with one intermission.

*The Sunday, March 16 performance will take place at 7pm; there is no performance on Sunday, March 23.
