Shakespeare's Globe

'The students and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. To actually see my students perform on the Globe stage was one of my highlights. I know this will be a lifetime memory for all involved. I certainly won't forget this experience for a long time and I cannot wait for next year!'

Our Theatre 2019 - Henry V

Thanks to the help and support of The Harris Foundation for Lifelong Learning we are delighted to announce that Our Theatre will once again be taking place in 2019.

Our Theatre is a Southwark-based community and schools performance project. Each year Globe Education Practitioners work with a range of groups to perform one of Shakespeare’s plays in their school or community setting. Each group then brings one act of the play to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse in a final ensemble performance for friends and family.

The project is free to participating groups and is an exciting and rewarding opportunity for members of the Southwark community. Our Theatre offers those who might not have worked with Shakespeare’s text in performance an incredible experience to work alongside industry professionals and perform in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse and for their respective communities in their own venue.

We will be working with five Southwark-based groups: two mainstream secondary schools, one Special Educational Needs school, The Globe’s Southwark Youth Theatre and an adult theatre company.

The chosen play for Our Theatre 2019 is Henry V, with the performance taking place on Thursday 11th July.

If you have any queries about the project please contact us by email or telephone on 020 7902 1462.
