Summary

The interview with Maggie Smales explores the approach and directorial decisions taken in her all-female production of Henry V at 41 Monkgate, York in 2015. Smales set the production at a munitions factory operated by women during the First World War in order to focus on the home-front perspective of female war workers and their sacrifices, drawing on the history of a local factory and the lives of local women who worked there. The women’s enactment of the text is the device used for a re-examination of Henry V’s significance in the context of the First World War.
