Just when I thought the Murphys couldn’t be matched-Massive congrats to the incredible @DruidTheatre team for #DruidShakespeare #EpicTheatre — Clare Monnelly (@ClareMonnelly) May 18, 2015
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.
It had its official opening last Saturday night in the Mick Lally Theatre and here’s a little sample of what audiences have been saying about it.
Still getting goosebumps from the Battle of Shrewbury scene in #DruidShakespeare, especially Derbhle Crotty. #BadAss
