Afternoon Delight: Putting Kenneth Branagh to Shame

by Jerome Weeks 5 Nov 2012 1:07 PM

You ain’t seen Shakespeare spoke til you see this 5-year-old elevate your soul and make you want to pick up a sword for King Henry.


Afternoon Delight is a daily diversion for when you’re just back from lunch, but not quite ready to knuckle down to work. Check back weekdays at 1 p.m. for another one.

A five-year-old delivers the ‘St. Crispin’s Day’ speech from Shakespeare’s Henry V. He clearly has to look off-camera for the occasional prompt, but hey, he still can make you want to cheer.

The armor definitely helps. Who doesn’t listen to a kid wearing chain mail?
