The year is 1941 and rehearsals for Henry V are underway… Greyhounds entwines Shakespeare's famous story of warlike Harry with the everyday trials and tribulations of small village life during the Second World War. Set in their local village hall, whilst the war rages above them the residents of Shuttlefield struggle to stage a production of Henry V to raise money for their local Spitfire fund. You’ll find them rehearsing, gossiping and indulging in some seriously bad acting as the night of the performance draws ever closer. This piece of new writing was a hit at the Edinburgh Festival 2018, and combines Shakespeare, with a touch of comedy and some truly vintage flair.
