Award winning actress Eileen Atkins performs a one-woman show covering the life and work of legendary British actress Ellen Terry.

Renowned for her Shakespearean roles during the Victorian era, Ellen Terry composed Four Lectures on Shakespeare with her friend and colleague, the great actor-manager Sir Henry Irving.

In Ellen Terry with Eileen Atkins, she weaves those lectures with stories from Ellen’s life and excerpts from Shakespeare’s plays in an atmospheric evening, held in the new Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare’s Globe.
