Hello world, we’re coming to you live from Shakespeare’s Globe! This year Metamorphoses will be live streamed from the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse and you can watch from home.

This playful new piece of theatre inspired by Ovid’s powerful collection of myths has been written bespoke to our candlelit Playhouse by the Globe’s first writers-in-residence in nearly four centuries.

Expect anarchy, shape shifting and a burning chariot of fire.

There are various live performances dates in September and October – with just two of these performances, 29 and 30 October, being live streamed to the world.

Live stream ticket prices start at just £5 per household with an option to donate on top.

‘We are here to make sense of it all’.

Introducing the Metamorphoses company.

The ensemble breathing new life into these provocative and pertinent stories includes: our Globe writers-in-residence, Sami Ibrahim, Laura Lomas and Sabrina Mahfouz; two directors, Globe Associate Artistic Director, Sean Holmes and Associate Artistic Director of Headlong, Holly Race Roughan; and four actors (to be confirmed).

Sami, Laura and Sabrina became the Globe’s resident writers with the introduction of our Scriptorium programme in 2019. The twelve-month residency saw the writers develop ideas and work bespoke to both of our theatre spaces. Metamorphoses marks the culmination of these three wonderful playwrights’ time with us.
