Lazarus Theatre Company have announced the company for their all-female production of Shakespeare’s Henry V, the final offering in their year long celebration marking the 450th anniversary of the Bard’s birth.
Returning to the company to play the heroic and triumphant King Henry is Colette O’Rourke. Colette’s previous Lazarus credits include Jessica in The Merchant of Venice at The Brockley Jack in 2013, and Cressida in Troilus and Cressida at The Tristan Bates Theatre in 2014.
“The opportunity to play such a significant Shakespearean and historical character is thrilling, especially one that is usually reserved for the boys. I don’t think opportunities like this come round that often” Colette O’Rourke on Henry V casting.
Also returning to the company, Catherine Thorncombe plays the roles of Catherine/Montjoy, Micha Colombo plays the roles of Fluellen/Exeter, and Rosanna Lamb returns to play the roles of Westmorland/Constable.
Making their Lazarus debut, are Bishop of Ely/Dauphin/MacMorris – Rehanna Macdonald, Archbishop of Canterbury/King of France – Elena Voce, The Boy/Sailsbury – Louise Goodfield, Jamy/Bedford/Bourbon – Nuala McGowen, Pistol/Scrope/French Ambassador – Becky Borland, Tewkesbury – Grace Andrews and playing Gower/Warwick – RJ Seeley.
