Even more titles are in store on Globe Player, our video-on-demand platform, including The Comedy of ErrorsAntony and CleopatraDoctor Faustus, Measure for Measure, and select productions from our Globe to Globe Festival.

As well as the existing 26 productions available on Globe Player, the latest title now available to stream includes The Comedy of Errors (2014). Two sets of estranged twin brothers embark on a search for their other halves in the town of Ephesus in Shakespeare’s uproarious comedy of mistaken identity.

We fondly remember the incredible and inspiring Hattie Ladbury in this production, who features as Adriana.

Subtitled in English, enjoy ten Shakespeare plays from around the world with five productions released on 13 December 2022, and a further five in early 2023 – titles to be announced.
