“The opportunity to play such a significant Shakespearian and historical character is thrilling, especially one that is usually reserved for the boys. I don’t think opportunities like this come round that often,” Colette O’Rourke said on being cast in the title role of Henry V.

Also returning to the company, Catherine Thorncombe plays the roles of Catherine and Montjoy, Micha Colombo plays the roles of Fluellen / Exeter and Rosanna Lamb returns to play the roles of Westmorland / Constable.
