A Midsummer Night's Dream

Until September 11, 2016

Emma Rice begins her first year as the Globe's new Artistic Director with this most beloved of the bard's plays, the magical and mischievous A Midsummer Night's Dream. Enter a beguiling realm as a plethora of fairy folk spin across the stage, setting the scene for this beloved tale comedy of warring hearts and mischievous spells, where mortals meet those of the dream world, creating a night that those caught in the crossfire will never forget!

The Taming of The Shrew

Until August 6, 2016

Passions run deep in this fresh rendition of The Taming of the Shrew, a marvellously uproarious comedy that sees warring temperaments between reluctant suitor Petruchio and his even more reluctant intended in the search for matrimonial bliss.

Macbeth

June 18-October 1, 2016

Shakespeare's brutal and potent tragedy returns to the Globe this summer with Ray Fearon as the ambitious Scottish general Macbeth and Tara Fitzgerald as his conniving wife, Lady Macbeth. Visceral, with a supernatural element, The Scottish Play explores the all-consuming effect of power as the Macbeths desperately attempt to cling on to it, murder by soul-corroding murder.

Imogen

September 17-October 16, 2016

Shakespeare's Cymbeline is re-imagined and refocused for the 21st century in this new production at the Globe Theatre. Matthew Dunster directs this powerful drama as part of Emma Rice's Wonder Season at the popular Southbank venue. When two lovers are violently torn apart by an angry king, his daughter finds herself at the centre of malicious rumours, and must fight not only for her reputation, but for the life she deserves.

The Merchant of Venice

October 4-15, 2016

In the cash-rich, consumer-driven society of Venice, everything has a price. So when the wealthy heiress Portia is forced to play off her many suitors against each other, the competing men must be able to finance their part of the bet. One man, Antonio approaches the much-maligned Jewish moneylender Shylock; years of anti-Semitism has made him bitter and hardened. Shylock begrudgingly agrees to loan him the money - but should he lose the wager, he will take a pound of flesh - literally. Jonathan Pryce returns as Shylock before heading off on tour with this much-praised production.
