(Opens June 22)
Stratford Festival, Stratford, Ontario, Canada; Tom Patterson Theatre
Performed in English

Part one of a "fast-paced new distillation" of Shakespeare's Henriad. Lust for power leads to political turmoil in this fast-paced new distillation of Shakespeare’s epic histories of a nation and its rulers – their lives, their battles and their deaths. Enjoy this epic drama on its own – or follow its exciting sequel in Breath of Kings: Redemption.

The theatre has regularly scheduled "forums," throughout the run. These range from discussion panels, to tours, to hands-on workshops, and presentations. Most are on site. For this production, the subjects are:  "Breath of Kings Readings" on March 1st, "Such in the Breath of Kings" on June 15th, "Wordplay - Showcase" from July 7th- September 1st. The aim to create discussion and conversation in the community about the festival's season and to encourage the spread of information and education.
