Its kingly speeches are as stirring as any battle cry-offering inspiration not only to budding actors but to anyone who wants to move a crowd, Shakespeare-style. This program focuses on Act II, Scene 2, from Henry V, following young British performers who have been invited to the Globe Theatre to perform the suspenseful passage. The youthful monarch's masterful confrontation and seizure of a group of traitors comes to life through rigorous rehearsals that culminate in a refined performance. An impassioned roundtable among the players makes up the final portion of the video.
