King Henry Five - This event has already occurred
King Henry Five celebrates Driftwood Theatre’s return to live performance after a three-year hiatus. An ambitious adaptation of three Shakespeare plays (Henry IV pts 1 & 2, Henry V), King Henry Five is a powerful story about community, the families we inherit and those we choose, and the legacies we leave behind. The Museum of L&A has sponsored this performance so ticket prices are pay what you can. Bring your own lawn chair and get ready to enjoy a beautiful summer evening of Shakespeare in the Park.
Set against the backdrop of a contemporary patio bar and featuring Driftwood’s signature blend of music, puppetry, and Shakespeare’s captivating poetry, King Henry Five rolls into outdoor community spaces across Ontario this summer.
