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

Hello world, we’re coming to you live from Shakespeare’s Globe! This year, our Summer 2021 Twelfth Night will be live streamed from the Globe Theatre and you can watch from home.

Illyria is a society in limbo, held captive by loss. Until a sea-drenched stranger arrives and unexpectedly unleashes the chaotic and transformative power of love.

Wild, surprising, fierce and funny, fiery new ★★★★ (Guardian, Telegraph) production, this version of Shakespeare’s comedy is directed by Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes and is infused with the mesmeric nostalgia and soulful music of the world of Americana.

This fiery new production has various live performances dates from July to October – with just two of these performances, on 23 October, being live streamed to the world.

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

If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction.

– Act III, scene 4
