our houses and ourselves and children
Have lost, or do not learn for want of time,
The sciences that should become our country;
But grow like savages,—as soldiers will
Henry V, Act V, Scene II Shakespeare
Henry V is part of the 1599 Project, a series of fast and furious chamber productions of Shakespeare classics performed by the ensemble of eight actors. (Hamlet: Up Close, As You Like It and Julius Caesar will be added, and the whole quartet will be presented in 2013.)
