Shakespeare's Globe on Tour 2020
Outdoor theatre will be making a welcome return to the Garden Theatre here at Calderstones this June, with four performances over three days.
Shakespeare’s Globe Touring Ensemble will offer audiences at Calderstones a choice of three plays, each exploring themes of nature, the city and the places beyond: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, As You Like It and The Tempest.
Make choice of which your highness shall see first
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act V, scene 1
In keeping with tradition – and with thrilling unpredictability – the choice of play will be put back into the hands of the most powerful members of the house – the audience. The crowd will be asked to cheer, clap and shout to vote for the play they want to see. Actors call it ‘terrifying’, audiences say it’s ‘exhilarating’. It’s an experiment, it’s experiential, it’s Shakespearean, it’s shared and it’s at the heart of what Shakespeare’s Globe does.
The show must go one come rain or shine, so make sure you dress for the weather and please bring along your own deck chairs, blankets and cushions to sit on. Suitable for theatre lovers of all ages.
If you need a carer to come with you to the event, we have a limited number of complimentary carer tickets available for these performances. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0151 729 2200 to discuss.
