Mark Rylance and Shakespeare’s Globe are thrilled to bring a company of 23 actors to Westminster Abbey for a unique event to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday. Join us for a promenade performance, as we create a beautiful and unexpected world within this sacred space. Consider the war-weary soldier or the hapless lover, behold a great Monarch or bide awhile with a lone and prayerful soul as you explore the famous Abbey on this special evening. All Places that the Eye of Heaven Visits is a collection of fleeting and intimate encounters with Shakespeare’s drama, poetry and song beneath the soaring ribs of London’s tremendous Westminster Abbey.
