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 directed by the Globe’s Artistic Director Dominic Dromgoole that will aim to take in every country in the world.

The project has been granted UNESCO patronage in recognition of the tour’s engagement with local communities and promotion of cultural education. It also received the Renee Stepham Award for Best Presentation of Touring Theatre from the UK Theatre Awards and The Stage International award 2015.

To date, your support has helped us travel to over 80 countries across Northern Europe, the Americas and Africa. Highlights include traveling to Somaliland to become the first foreign theatre company to stage a full play in 23 years, and performing for free to over 3000 people in Sudan.
