The King’s Face has concluded its summer run in London, this are happening behind the scenes to bring the story to new audiences and we will keep you posted of new performances.
Our latest Review from So So Gay, Four Stars:
“Steven Young’s skills as a playwright are laid bare in some beautifully written descriptive dialogue; of particular note are Harry’s poetic and engrossing reminiscences of battle, made all the more impressive and memorable by Trosko’s bounding panache.”
“…unusual and powerfully affecting, The King’s Face is a brilliant, entertaining and exhilarating piece of theatre.”

Review by Howard Loxton (2011)
This is a play about England’s King Henry V, or rather about Harry of Monmouth, the Prince of Wales, who would become Henry V, the same Prince Hal who features in Shakespeare’s twoHenry IV plays and his Henry V, the man whose army famously won the Battle of Agincourt. But this is not the bluff Prince Hal of Shakespeare’s histories. He is a figure perhaps more close to the real character of history…
“…the story, the direction and the actor’s accomplished performances are together totally engaging and make for an absorbing and satisfying evening, with plenty to muse on. Real, living history.”

“The King’s Face is well-conceived, well-written and supremely well-acted, with genuine insights into the half-cursed life of Shakespeare’s most famous monarch… …With an intriguing topic and a deft execution, it’s a play I’ll be thinking about for a good while to come.”
