Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.

Celebrate the talents of the next generation of actors with our unique collaboration between Shakespeare’s Globe and the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, New Jersey. Rutgers Acting students will stage their workshop performance of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing in the Globe Theatre.

In a world of ideals, beauty standards, and ambition is there room for real love anymore? When a match can be found at the swipe of a button, and an algorithm can select our perfect partner, what happens now when we are confronted with true love?

When a parent, Leonato, loves their child too much…

When two people, Claudio and Hero, fall deeply in love at first sight…

When two lovers, Benedick and Beatrice, can’t actually admit their love for each other…

…what happens?

We give you Shakespeare’s anti-romcom: Much Ado About Nothing.

Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably

– Act I, Scene 2

This workshop performance is open to all and gives audiences a great opportunity to experience the Globe Theatre and celebrate new artists.
