'The Sam Wanamaker festival was an incredible and inspiring experience. It gave me the chance to perform on the most magical stage and meet other students at exactly the same point in their careers and spend a weekend having fun! A vital thing for an actor leaving drama school.'

When earthly things made even
Atone together'

As You Like It (Act 5, Scene 4) 

Students from the UK’s leading drama schools and Rutgers Conservatory at Shakespeare’s Globe present scenes by Shakespeare and his contemporaries in the Globe Theatre. The public performance offers a heady mix of tragical, historical, pastoral and comical scenes culminating in one mighty festive finale jig.

With thanks to Spotlight.

Tickets will be available in January 2017.
