Published by Aurora Metro

Large Mixed Cast
This play explores how children were enlisted as soldiers to go to war against the French and fight in the battle of Agincourt

A group of young villagers - some of them barely out of childhood - enlist in King Henry's army and set sail from Southampton to claim the throne of France for England

Each has a different reason for going and their expectations vary, but none has any experience of fighting in a war

Combining fact and fantasy, the play takes us on a journey from the peace of rural England to the bloody battlefields of Agincourt in France

Where the villagers finally come face to face with the mightiest army in Europe

Ideal for schools, colleges and youth theatres to perform
