DruidShakespeare is an epic theatre event that condenses four action-packed plays – Richard II, Henry IV (Parts 1 & 2), and Henry V – into one thrilling drama played out over six hours.
Richard II’s story is the loss of innocence. A king since he was a child, when he finds his throne under threat and must consider how a king can become a man, he asks himself how such a man can live.
Henry IV’s story is the price of arrogance. Having plucked the crown from his cousin’s head, he divides houses, enrages nobility and jeopardises the loyalty of his own supporters until he has only his family to turn to.
Henry V is a coming-of-age story. He squanders his youth with scoundrels and mistresses, but he must face up to his fate as heir to the throne and mend his ways in order to win the hearts and minds of the nobility and unite his country.
Shakespeare’s tales of ambition, destruction, responsibility and rebellion are performed with an exceptional cast, live music, thrilling dramatic moments and a rousing parade of characters including one of Shakespeare’s greatest comic creations, Falstaff.
Cast: Clare Barrett, Derbhle Crotty, Gavin Drea, Bosco Hogan, Garrett Lombard, Karen McCartney, Charlotte McCurry, Aaron Monaghan, Marie Mullen, Rory Nolan, John Olohan, Aisling O’Sullivan, Marty Rea
