The new season of classic and modern plays at Shakespeare’s Globe in London.
Shakespeare’s Globe is an extraordinary venue in London.
Dedicated to exploring Shakespeare’s work, it is a replica of the playhouse on the South Bank for which Shakespeare wrote.
Alongside the Globe Theatre, there is also an Exhibition and an opportunity to tour Shakespeare’s Globe.
The Globe has also opened its new indoor theatre – the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse – which is based on a Jacobean Playhouse and lit by candlelight.
