Directed by John Crofts

The play:

This production of Henry V takes place in an alternative timeline. A reality in which neoclassical and postmodern concepts live hand-in-hand. In this world that features radios and swords, tanks and Gothic armour, aeroplanes and mounted knights; King Henry V attempts to restore British prestige by invading the old enemy and conquering France once and for all.

 

Being a lover of Bertolt Brecht and Steven Berkoff. the director enjoys their creative visions. As such, he has chosen to take inspiration from them for his production of Henry V. He is looking at stylized simplicity. Few props, simple costumes, and hand-picked movements. More than that, you will have to see for yourselves.

The director:
 I’m the outsider looking in. I grew up in Africa, and spent much of my life in the IT industry, although I have a love for the arts I lived in a place that frowned upon them. It was not until I moved to the UK in 2017, that my true passions could blossom. I’m now in 2023, a student at Kent, studying drama and theatre, performing where and when I can. My dreams are now becoming reality.

’ve worked with a number of local theatre groups since moving to the UK. It’s been fun, but I have never been involved with a group that’s so full of talented, passionate people… until now. CSF has been a wonderful experience thus far. I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds.
