NAU’s new summer production company, Crooked Figure Theatre, thought it was about time Shakespeare’s Henry V sported a female lead.“For one of the first times in the play’s production history, Henry is a powerful woman,” says Director Christina Dennehy. “Shakespeare's plays are notoriously male dominated, and nowhere is that truer than in his medieval history plays. We’re about to change all of that.”
El Portal Hotel in Sedona will serve as the stage for Henry V with its magical-like courtyard and architecture. As the story of Henry V unfolds, the audience will move throughout the hotel.
Henry V will be performed at 6:00 p.m. on August 11, 12, 18 and 19, 2017.
Location: El Portal Hotel (95 Portal Lane in Sedona, Arizona).
The production is free and open to the public.
No reservations are needed; seating is first-come, first-served.
Parking is available at El Portal and in nearby lots.
