Summer 2023

Step into the story this summer and experience timeless worlds, kaleidoscopic emotions, and possible futures with us at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Inspired by the wonder of our wooden ‘O’, in which nature and human nature converse and connect; what better place to experience these extraordinary plays, in this extraordinary playhouse, at this most extraordinary of times.

Be transported to The Tempest’s enchanted island, explore the fantastical forest in As You Like It, witness nature and human nature collide in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, watch the natural order turn upside down in Macbeth and travel to Elizabethan London in the madcap The Comedy of Errors.

We continue our world-leading Research and Learning programmes to offer artists, academics and audiences of all ages opportunities to share in the power of Shakespeare’s storytelling. Our acclaimed Research in Action and free Anti-Racist Shakespeare series continue, and our hilarious family production Midsummer Mechanicals is back by popular demand, taking over the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse during the summer holidays.
