Screen Writer Sally Rosser

Henry V

William Shakespeare
Directed by Joe Talbot

With so much of Shakespeare's language in everyday speech and consumption of storytelling becoming increasingly immediate, Screenwriter Sally Rosser shares why she feels a responsibility to find new ways for children to engage with the world's most famous writer.

Sally describes the challenge of adapting such an epic play and why Henry V is the perfect first text for WillShake to share.
