DruidShakespeare Documentary

Reception to Follow
75 minutes

This year Druid Theatre Company marked their 40th anniversary by taking on their most ambitious project yet. To universal acclaim, fearless, pioneering director Garry Hynes and her ensemble took on Shakespeare’s History Plays, casting Irish women as English kings and men as bawdy widows. Wildfire Films and award winning director Maurice Sweeney were with them all the way, documenting the journey from text to triumphant premiere and to rave reviews in New York City at the Lincoln Festival this past summer.

Produced by Wildfire Films and aired on RTÉ in December 2015, the DruidShakespeare documentary will screen at IAC, followed by a Q&A session with DruidShakespeare director, and Druid Artistic Director, Garry Hynes, moderated by Nigel Redden, Director, Lincoln Center Festival.
