Romeo and Juliet

Until April 30, 2017

A must-see for Bard fans, the most iconic of Shakespeare's romantic tragedies returns to the Tudor-esque Globe Theatre in what will be artistic director Emma Rice's final summer season, as part of the Summer Of Love 50th anniversary season! Verona's two-star-crossed lovers must thwart their two respective warring families if they are to be married and reconcile their loved ones. However, the actions of one rash cousin on Juliet's side spurs Romeo into a hasty and deadly action; something that reverberates throughout the rest of the play, to its tragic conclusion.

Nell Gwynn

Opens May 2, 2017

After its 2015 globe premiere starring Gugu MBatha-Raw and subsequent West End transfer with Gemma Arterton, Jessica Swale's bawdy biopic of the aspiring actress who became mistress to Charles II following the Reformation is back! Starring Laura Pitt-Pulford this time around, the play is once again helmed by Christopher Luscombe and co-produced by English Touring Theatre. A true love letter to the joys of theatre, it is Swale's first production for the Globe since debuting with 2013's Blue Stockings.

Twelfth Night

May 18-June 10, 2017

Part of the Globe Theatre's Summer Of Love season in 2017, Emma Rice's new production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night will join the proceedings, following her successful 2016 stagings of 946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips and her sell-out run of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which was broadcast by both the BBC and the British Council to critical acclaim. This story of love and loss takes place on a mysterious island, where our heroine Viola is desperate to find her brother following a deadly shipwreck.

Tristan and Yseult

June 13-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.
