The year is 1941 and rehearsals for Henry V are about to begin…
Greyhounds entwines Shakespeare’s famous story of ‘warlike Harry’ with the everyday trials and tribulations of small village life during World War Two. Whilst the war rages above them, the residents of Shuttlefield village struggle to stage a production of Henry V to raise money for their local Spitfire fund.
“You should think yourself accurs’d if you miss this clever and charming production.”

Following on from a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018, as well as two at the Greater Manchester Fringe and one at the Altrincham Garrick Playhouse, Greyhounds is now touring the UK! From village halls to RAF hangers, Time & Again are proud to be sharing their show. Greyhounds is perfect for older audiences and vintage fiends who love a bit of wartime nostalgia but also for schools/children/students as it provides a window into life on the home front in Wold War Two as well as an introduction to Shakespeare.
Costumes provided by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury
