On Sunday 17 March 2002, the acclaimed Generator theatre group will
appear at the Rose in a semi-staged reading of their new production
Henry V:  The Battle of Agincourt, during their 2002 tour.  John
Barton's adaptation of Shakespeare's play is being directed by Stewart
McGill and is described as 'both a celebration of war and a criticism of
war, a timely play for today... presented for all ages... brings
Shakespeare into contemporary focus'.

Generator are based in Warwick specialise in introducing plays from the
Tudor and Jacobean period to as wide an audience as possible, often in
unusual locations: this year's tour will also take in Pickering and
Kenilworth Castles.  Their previous productions have attracted rave
reviews, The Stage claiming that 'the standard of acting and design is
comparable to neighbouring RSC productions' and the Birmingham Post that
'you sit amazed at their capacity to conjure up the intensity required
for good theatre (Dr Faustus) ... unlikely to see anything much better
this year (Macbeth)'.

This is a one-off performance, which will begin at 15.00 on Sunday 17
March.  Tickets will be
