Director's Notes

All over Western Europe in the 15th Century, land was being willed to the church. Church lands grew so freely that the crown lost much revenue. The bill that Canterbury refers to would allow the King to seize some of that land. So Canterbury, according to Holinshed, Shakespeare's main source, aware of Henry's character and desire to make up for his wild youth, offers Henry church support to invade France. (Modern historians do not place all that blame on Canterbury.) Henry's public reason to invade France is to gain back the land he thinks should be his. The church's reason is to protect their lands, and Henry's real reason, probably, Canterbury is right, is to make up for lost time. Complicated causes lead to an ugly and messy war, and unfortunately, as in any war, people die.

- Luther Hanson, Director
