Henry's most successful play, Inuk and the Sun, has been performed in many parts of the world. When it premiered in Stratford in 1973, Thomas Willis, the theatre critic for the CHICAGO TRIBUNE wrote: "If you could have your pick of the Stratford, Ontario, season for an opening in Chicago next week, what would you choose?" asked a friend. "The answer was easy. Not Shakespeare, Goldsmith or Gogol... What I would give a lot to see here next week, next year, any time, is Inook and the Sun...as beautiful and magnificent as Homer." Sherrill Grace in Canada: the Idea of North (2001) refers to the play as “a mythic masterpiece”. It has been translated into Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Polish, Turkish, a.o.
