Much Ado About Nothing

Until August 24, 2024

One of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, Much Ado About Nothing pits the sexes against each other with riotous results. Two couples dance 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 to get a truly happy ending. Back at the Globe for the 2024 season, enjoy a vivid, Elizabethan-flavoured production of this classic, with Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes at the helm.

June 6 - October 25, 2024

Passions run deep in The Taming of the Shrew, returning to the Globe this summer in an uproarious new production from Jude Christopher who makes their Globe debut as a director. One of Shakespeare's most recognisable plays, this marvellous comedy sees warring temperaments between reluctant suitor Petruchio and his even more reluctant intended Katherina reach a fever pitch as they're thrown together by his best friend Luciano in his quest to wed. her much more obliging sister Bianca. The inspiration behind 90s teen comedy 10 Things I Hate About You and much more, don't miss your chance to join in the action!

Shakespeares Globe Theatre

venue exterior

21 New Globe Walk, Bankside, London SE1 9DT

  • Year opened: 1997
  • Capacity: 1,400

The home of William Shakespeare! Shakespeare's Globe is a perfectly reconstructed build of the 1599 Globe Theatre; a place which saw the great Shakespeare write his masterpieces.

The original was built in 1599 but burned down in 1613, the Globe was rebuilt a year later but was then demolished in 1644. The Globe we see today is an approximation based on evidence of the original building. The only difference being today's Globe can only hold 1,400 spectators whereas the original theatre welcomed 3,000 - this is due to safety standards.
