Henry 5 is a story of political intrigue and personal ambition that not only reminds us of the Bush / Blair years and the invasion of Iraq, but also sentiments that Shakespeare expressed 400 years ago are as relevant today as they were then, and will be in the future.
Society has not yet descended into a post-apocalyptic maelstrom but the nation is broke and morally in terminal decline. With echoes of Blair and Bush’s invasion of Iraq (which many believe was to do with oil), the King (Henry) decides with his cabinet to ‘cook up’ a war dossier so that he can ‘legally’ invade Britain’s closest neighbour - France.
France provides the UK with its electricity and still has wide-open spaces with 100 hectares more land per 1 hectare of England’s soil. Britain is now over populated and breaking at the seams so a fast cabinet decision is pushed through parliament - WAR. Shakespeare provides us with the richness of language to convey this apocalyptic vision perfectly.
England’s only hope of survival is to carry out two tasks in the war manifesto:
1) Take France and control the electricity, gas and coal, which the UK can no longer meet their price demands for.
2) Contain all of the non-British (and the French think non French) within the strict borders of a renamed United Kingdom.
This coup can only be sealed by Henry if he becomes victorious and marries Katherine the daughter of the King and Queen of France. A war cabinet is assembled and the French are denounced as war profiteers – a decision is passed and war is declared….
