What else is on at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre?

Shakespeare's epic love story

For the first time in ten years, Antony & Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s epic story of love, duty, and power unfolds in the Globe Theatre in a ground-breaking bilingual production using Spoken English and British Sign Language.

Rome is an empire ruled by men. Egypt is a kingdom governed by a woman. Despite their different cultures, Roman general Antony falls for Egyptian queen Cleopatra. Their passion blazes across two continents, upsets the world order and puts thousands of lives at risk.

Allow yourself to be transported back to the medieval 1500's, a time of political upheaval, strongly religious atmospheres, social change, and incredible theatre. Immerse yourself in the world of Shakespeare, and enjoy his plays just the same as those in medieval times did.

The theatre is inspired and informed by the unique historic playing conditions of two beautiful iconic theatres, this diverse programme of work harnesses the power of performance, cultivates intellectual curiosity and excites learning to make Shakespeare accessible for all.
