Henry V, Globe
The Globe finished their World Shakespeare Season with Henry V, and also launched their new season with it. Jamie Parker returned as Hal and was as charming and cocky and young-Kenny-Brannagh as ever. We'd seen Henry IV parts one and two last year at the cinema and my god they were fantastic, so much better than the BBC's Hollow Crown series, Simon Russell Beale can fuck right off, he is a charmless slime-bucket, we love you Roger Allam, your Falstaff is my dream man, I was horrified at his "death scene cameo" (a large covered corpse was carried off) in Henry V. Yes, it was a good show and I'm glad I saw them all, but I miss Falstaff and as soon as it was over we went straight to the shop and bought Henry IV parts one and two on dvd to give to Dad-Y for birthday. Making this June!
Amy listens to radio 4, she goes to the theatre and she rents foreign films. In between this busy lifestyle she creates artwork for TV drama productions such as BBC One's 'Birdsong' and the upcoming Stephen Poliakoff drama 'Dancing on the Edge'. Besides TV she carries on the classic British tradition of silly pen and watercolour illustrations. She also likes to made badges.
