All performances start at 7:30pm

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.

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.

Bard’s Bus Tour 2022 has now closed.

A big thanks to all of our staff, artists, partners, supporters and audience for helping to make Driftwood Theatre’s return to live touring such an incredible success.
