DruidShakespeare tour Limerick June 2015
DruidShakespeare tour will be on national tour and performances of the play will take place this June in the Lime Tree Theatre from June 23 to June 27.
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 II, Henry 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.
