The Edge Productions Presents An All-Female Production of Henry V by William Shakespeare
June 1 @ 8:00 pm - June 3 @ 4:00 pm
The Edge Productions opens their All-Female production of Henry V by William Shakespeare tour in Windsor at Sho Studios on June 1-3, 2018.
Henry IV is dead and Hal is now King. With England in a state of unrest, he must leave his rebellious youth behind, striving to gain the respect of his nobility and people. Touted by some as “Shakespeare’s action movie”, our all-female production is set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic war allowing us to focus in on the snap decisions of youth and Hals journey to become a worthy leader. With 25 roles, played by 8 women, this is going to be a creative and action packed trek through the battlefield – challenging perceptions and subverting expectations.
The complete cast of Henry V includes Robin Luckwaldt (Henry), Àine Donnelly (Fluellen, Grey, Alice), Celeste Maria Fiallos (Pistol, Scroop, Orleans), Marina Gomes (Gower, Cambridge, French Soldier/Mr Fer), Arielle Zamora (Exeter, French Governor, Bates), Olivia Ridpath (Westmoreland, Katherine, Constable, Boy), Rebecca Lashmar (Dauphin, Burgundy, Williams), & Janine Marley (Montjoy, French Ambassador, Herald, Messenger, King of France).
Directed by The Edge Productions Founding Artistic Director, Miriam Goldstein.
Set Design by Nathanial Cedroni, Costume Design by Jacqueline Karabatsos, & Lighting Design by Nathanial Cedroni & Morgan Corbett-Collins.
This production is touring in Windsor, Kingston, Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa, and St. Thomas from June 1st-June 15th, 2018. More show dates are being added as well. The tour is traveling to more traditional venues but the show is also performing, for free, at youth treatment centres and in a female prison.
June 1 & 2 at 8pm
June 3 at 2pm
