Shakespeare's Globe

Globe to Globe Hamlet

Please support our goal of reaching every country in the world

On 23 April 2014, the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, Shakespeare’s Globe embarked on a two-year global tour of Hamlet that will aim to take in every country in the world. Globe to Globe Hamlet, directed by the Globe’s Artistic Director Dominic Dromgoole, is a completely unprecedented theatrical adventure.

The company will travel to all nations in the world to stage Hamlet in a huge range of unique and atmospheric venues, from village squares to national theatres, from palaces to beaches. They will travel by boat, sleeper train, 4X4, tall ship, bus and aeroplane across the seven continents.

Funds raised through our Giving Wall will support the costs of giving performances in the poorest and most challenging countries in the world.

To encourage you to support this tour, a generous anonymous donor has set up a matched giving scheme in which EVERY POUND you donate will be matched. Donations will be matched up to a total of £75,000 with a maximum single donation of £5,000.
