Henry V Characters

The Chorus leads the audience through the play, explaining those things that the theatre lacks the ability, the budget, or the time to show. 

Somewhat apologetic in manner, he nevertheless urges that the audience have their part to play in the performance, and insists that they use their imaginations to supplement what’s missing from the stage. Chorus is a bit of a cheerleader for the King, presenting a triumphant, patriotic story, and ignoring anything that might happen on stage to challenge that view, though he is forced to admit that Henry’s triumph didn’t last, as can be seen in the various Henry VI plays.
