Shakespeare for the Masses is back and they are bringing Henry V with them. The Young prince Henry of Henry IV has now matured into a man, with manly desires — thus the decision to conquer France. “We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.”

Lines like that make going to war sound almost cozy.

The play usually runs a few hours, but a Shakespeare for the Masses production always rolls in at just under an hour. They are always free, too. Yes, free, the better to spread the words of the master and send us all “Once more into the breach, dear friends...”

The performances are at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 28, and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 29, both shows playing at the Katharine Cornell Theatre.
