Wedged between Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, the ultra-nationalistic Henry V is the perfect choice to launch The Montford Park Players’ 42nd season of free Shakespeare in the park. The play — a tale of one man’s quest to be king — pairs humor, drama and romance with “some of the most patriotic and inspiring speeches in history,” according to a press release. These include “Once more into the breach, dear friends, once more,” and the much-quoted St. Crispin’s Day address. Jason Williams directs, and newcomer Henry Williamson takes on the title role. The production runs through Saturday, June 28, at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheater. Shows are Fridays and Saturdays, at 7:30 p.m. Donations encouraged. montfordparkplayers.org.
