SHAKESPEARE AT 450

Our first season in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse celebrates the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth.

The season opens with a stunning candlelit production of John Lyly’s witty and beautiful Galatea presented by the Edwards’ Boys from Shakespeare’s own grammar school.

Some of the world’s leading Shakespeare scholars tell us what the anniversary means to them in a series of exclusive Shakespeare at 450 Lectures, including this year’s Sam Wanamaker Fellow Jonathan Bate and previous Fellows Stanley Wells, Tiffany Stern, James Shapiro, Lisa Jardine, Andrew Gurr and Farah Karim-Cooper.

Read Not Dead celebrates its move into the Playhouse with an exceptional season including Jonson’s Every Man in His Humour in which Shakespeare originally acted, and the chance for you to choose the last reading of the season in a special public voting event.

This August we host a groundbreaking new industry conference on Interactive and Immersive arts for young people and families. Join us and Action for Children's Arts for a day of panels, talks and award winning performance with leading participative arts practitioners.

This summer’s Study Days will satisfy the keenest of minds. Children and families can get involved in Story Days, and the sell-out Muse of Fire returns later this summer – with a twist in its tale.

Pre- and Post-show events illuminate the Globe Theatre season whilst the brand new Research in Action explores the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse inside and out with leading scholars and Globe Theatre artists: audience participation will be encouraged!
