The new Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe, Michelle Terry, opens her tenure at the famous London theatre with Hamlet, taking up her new role as the Globe comes of age and reaches its twenty-first year. Playing alongside Hamlet from May 2018 will be As You Like It. Both written around 1599, the year the original Globe was built, these plays speak to each other. An ensemble of artists including Federay Holmes, Bettrys Jones, Jack Laskey, Nadia Nadarajah and Michelle Terry herself, explores these well-thumbed and popular plays in parallel and as if for the first time.

 

About Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

This replica of the Shakespeare's 16th century theatre, reconstructed just 200 yards from its original site, is the brainchild of American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. Built in wood and thatch, using techniques from 400 years ago, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre opened in 1996. More about Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
