You’re invited to see King Henry rally his outnumbered troops to defeat France on its home turf, or, in this case, the UC Davis Arboretum. Or, more precisely, the gazebo.

Logo: Henry V

That is where the Davis Shakespeare Ensemble is presenting Henry V, starting with a preview performance Thursday (June 14) and continuing through July 1 (performances Thursday through Sunday; see times and all the dates below).

A news release states: “The ensemble will shed new light on this classic by transforming what is normally a war epic into an intimately suspenseful experience — with a tight-knit company of only five actors!”
