Richard II

Until October 18, 2015

There's plotting and intrigue galore in the first of Shakespeare's War of the Roses play, with the weak and cowardly Richard seizing lands and trying to stave off the claim of Henry Bolingbroke (the future Henry IV) to the throne. One of the most tragic of the King plays, Shakespeare explores what the true meaning of kingship is, and how rising powers can easily destroy a fragile monarch. Part of the 2015 summer season at the Globe this year, join the current craze for all things Tudor.

Nell Gwynn

Until October 17, 2015

Doctor Who alumnus Gugu Mbatha-Raw leads Jessica Swale's enchanting production of Nell Gwynn, a biopic of the aspiring actress who became mistress to Charles II following the Reformation. The play will be helmed by Christopher Luscombe in what will be his final season at the iconic South bank venue. A true love letter to the joys of theatre, this will be Swale's first production for the Globe since debuting with 2013's Blue Stockings.
