Story days

Dynamic and unforgettable retellings of Shakespeare’s stories by Globe Education story tellers, suitable for the whole family. (Advised for 6+)

THE TEMPEST

With story teller Saul Jaffe. 

Saturday 12 April

Come with us on a journey to a brave new world.

When a group of travellers find themselves shipwrecked on an enchanted island they encounter its strange and vengeful inhabitants. There’s the magician Prospero, who is angry and may have had something to with the storm, his daughter Miranda, the mischievous spirit Ariel and Caliban, who has a pretty large chip on his shoulder. Is this the stuff of nightmares or dreams?

 

THE MERCHANT OF VENICE

With story teller Woody Murray.

Wednesday 16 April

Be warned: it can be exciting to live the high life in the city, but it can also be dangerous. Very dangerous. 

Bassanio, a young man with money problems, needs cash to make a good impression with Portia. His friend, the businessman Antonio, arranges for him to borrow what he needs from the moneylender Shylock. This all seems good until they discover Shylock’s rather unusual and unpleasant penalty for not paying up on time. 

 

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

Saturday 31 May

 Globe Education is pleased to work with one of the UK’s premier deaf theatre companies Deafinatly Theatre to produce a deaf accessible story day performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This performance will be accessible to both deaf and hearing audiences.

 

ANTONY & CLEOPATRA

Saturday 14 June

When Mark Antony falls out with his fellow Roman leaders he must decide whether to desert the woman he loves – Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt - or risk splitting the Roman Empire in two.

Antony & Cleopatra is a breathtaking story about love and power told against the backdrop of war.

 

JULIUS CAESAR

Saturday 12 July

Friends, Romans, Countrymen! Lend me your ears for a tale of treachery most terrible.

Julius Caesar returns from the war unbelievably popular with the mob in Rome. Brutus and his gang decide the general must be stopped from taking complete control of the city.

Daggers are sharpened, but once the deed is done Brutus finds his troubles are only just beginning.

 

TITUS ANDRONICUS

Saturday 2 August

A gore-tastic yarn of generals, an imprisoned queen, ghosts, murder… and quite possibly the worst pies in Rome.

Titus Andronicus was a smash hit for Shakespeare at the start of his career. Bursting with energy it throws us into the cauldron of Roman power play. At it’s heart is one of Shakespeare’s greatest villains.
