Tristan and Yseult

Until July 1, 2017

Carl Grose and Anna Maria Murphy of Kneehigh Theatre return with a new revival of their hit play of love and betrayal, when it comes to the Globe as part of the 2017 Summer Of Love season. First staged in 2005, it was adapted by the Globe's Emma Rice, who will be stepping down at the end of the year as artistic director. After a successful UK tour and a stint travelling across the USA during the 2014/15 season, it finally comes home to London. Combining uproarious comedy, live music, grand passion and bitter truths, rediscover the wild romance of feudal Cornwall.

Much Ado About Nothing

July 14-31, 2017

One of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, this also has its darker moments. Two couples are dancing around declaring their love for each other; Benedick and Beatrice, and Hero and Claudio. But when the machinations of a dastardly nobleman threaten their happiness, one of our heroes must fake their own death in order to get a truly happy ending. This production, helmed by Matthew Dunster is part of the 50th anniversary of the Summer Of Love in 1967, and the final season of outgoing artistic director Emma Rice.

King Lear

August 10-27, 2017

Shakespeare's infamous 'mad king' who tested his three daughters' love for him is given new life in a brand-new production directed by Nancy Meckler, whose previous works for the RSC include Anna Karenina, Heartbreak House, True West, The Birthday Party, The Bacchae and Orestes. When the ageing monarch of Britain, King Lear, decides to handover his duties to his three daughters by dividing up his kingdom amongst them. In order to do this, he decides to allocate the portions based upon each of his daughter's declarations of their love for him, with disastrous consequences.


Opens September 8, 2017

As part of 2017's Summer Of Love season at the Globe, the world premiere of Tristan Bernays' Boudica will be lighting up the historic venue, as part of artistic director Emma Rice's final season.
