30 April – 16 October

For her first season as Artistic Director at Shakespeare's Globe, Emma Rice will be filling our spaces with wonder


Emma will open her season by directing A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Following this, audiences can expect powerful stagings of The Taming of the Shrew and Macbeth as well as Imogen, a reframed production of Cymbeline; UK-wide tours of The Merchant of Venice and The Two Gentlemen of Verona; and Kneehigh’s family-friendly 946 – The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips and the magical The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk.




❛I hope that my first season will inspire joy, sorrow, fear and laughter in equal, glorious, wonderful, childlike measure as we all choose to get lost in the woods together❜

Emma Rice
