Galway’s Druid Theatre Company comes to Lincoln Center in New York this July with DruidShakespeare: The History Plays. Penned by Mark O’Rowe, the production pares down versions of the bard’s four plays about the English monarchy. The plays will be presented as a marathon theatrical experience, or in two consecutive installments by the Druid Ensemble, a “remarkable company,” according to The New York Times. ♦
