Summary

June 30 – September 14, 2024

Lowell Davies Festival Theatre

World premiere adaptation
By William Shakespeare
Adapted and directed by Barry Edelstein

A once-in-a-generation event comes to San Diego in 2024: The Old Globe becomes one of only a small handful of theatres in the country’s history to complete Shakespeare’s canon with Henry 6, the largest Shakespeare production the Globe has ever presented.

Acclaimed Shakespeare director and the Globe’s Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein turns the rarely produced Henry VI, Parts I, II, and III into a thrilling two-part event, running simultaneously through the summer in our beautiful outdoor theatre. Two ruling families of England, the Yorks and the Lancasters, fight each other in a high-stakes civil war for power known as the Wars of the Roses. These adaptations include everything people love about the Bard—ingenious language, vibrant characters, breathtaking battles, and sweeping crowd scenes—as they explore the impact of national politics on individual lives. And the action is framed by a design team working at the very top of their craft, and a sprawling cast of professional actors and local community members.

This historic milestone will be celebrated with a yearlong program of citywide arts engagement and humanities events that will bring audiences closer to the art than ever before, including opportunities for San Diegans to participate in the making of the production itself. It is an event that simply cannot be missed!

This production includes violence.

Vicki and Carl Zeiger Insights Seminar: Tuesday, July 16 at 7:00 p.m.

Post Show Forum: Wednesday, July 24; Wednesday, August 7; and Tuesday, August 20.

Henry 6 is made possible by a generous grant from The Roy Cockrum Foundation.
