Shakespeare in the Garden

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.

Whether you’re joining us with a chair of your own, want to rent one, or prefer sitting stage-side on the ground make sure you’ve got the best seats by reserving your tickets ahead of time. With Driftwood’s flexible, Pay What You Can Afford admission, guests are invited to select from four set ticket prices.
