"Take a reckless, hell-raising youth and put him at the head of a nation that is restive and torn by civil war. The outcome could go any number of ways.
The outcome imagined by William Shakespeare is now being presented at the Blackfriars Playhouse in "Henry V," the final work in a foursome of Shakespeare's so-called "history" plays that began with "Richard II" and continued through the two parts of "Henry IV."
It has been a long and entertaining ride since 2008, with the American Shakespeare Center's Ralph Alan Cohen directing the tetralogy that deals with the rise of the House of Lancaster. I didn't review "Richard II," so I can't speak to its artistic merits, but I have enjoyed every chapter in the saga since then."
