What do The Tempest, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and All’s Well That End’s Well have in common? Well, they’re some of Shakespeare’s most wonderful comedies and the latest titles to be added to Globe Player, our video-on-demand platform.  Experience the wonder of our Globe Theatre right from the comfort of your living room, whenever you want, by purchasing individual titles or by subscribing to Globe Player for unlimited access for a year.
