Henry V

City Lit Theater

Ascending the throne of England after the death of his father, young Henry V faces suspicion from within his country and pressure from without.

Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...Diana Coates is a charismatic, commanding Henry, ably supported by a ten-woman ensemble in multiple roles (their lightning-fast costume changes are as impressive as their wordplay and swordplay). Alison Vodnoy Wolf, a Chicago theater newcomer recently arrived from Cincinnati, is especially charming as Henry’s French bride, Catherine of Valois, in the comic bilingual courtship scene that climaxes the play."

Windy City Times - Highly Recommended

"...No classroom monitors are needed to keep us alert whenever Diana Coates ( whom playgoers may recall from the recent House That Will Not Stand at Victory Gardens ) takes the stage, however. Surrounded by a unigender cast speaking almost exclusively in treble key, her contralto vocal range and nuanced text interpretation inspire confidence and charisma with every word. War may be brutal—as Kim Fukawa's combat choreography never flinches from reminding us—but that doesn't stop us rallying behind a hero endowed with so much of the right stuff."
