Richaed II, Henry IV (Pts. 1 & 2) and Henry V by William Shakespeare in a new adaptation by Mark O’Rowe directed by Garry Hynes

In a co-production with Lincoln Center Festival


An epic story of families, wars and the making of nations

DruidShakespeare is an exploration of English history through an Irish lens. As Shakespeare was writing  Richard IIHenry IV (Pts. 1 & 2), and Henry V English forces were being sent to Ireland to quell rebellions and these expeditions are referred to throughout the plays.  Adapted by one of Ireland’s most exciting writers, Mark O’Rowe, DruidShakespeare distills the narratives of these four works into a unified dramatic action. Shakespeare’s language has been preserved as has the chronology of the plays but O’Rowe’s adaptation removes ancillary characters and streamlines the narrative to harness the drama of these epic works. DruidShakespeare will be presented by a 13-strong cast, including members of the Druid Ensemble, the bedrock of the company.
