Next year, join us for a bold and vibrant 2013 theatre season, bringing you the supernatural, new writing, touring productions and Globe to Globe.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream,The Tempest,and Macbeth will sit at the heart of the season, while three new plays will receive world premieres –The Lightning Child by Ché Walker, with music by Arthur Darvill, Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale, and Gabriel by Samuel Adamson, featuring English trumpet soloist, Alison Balsom.
A mid-scale tour of Henry VI, Parts 1, 2 and 3 will visit venues around the UK, including a visit to the Globe in the summer, and there will be small-scale tours of King Lear and The Taming of the Shrew, playing at the Globe and across the UK, Europe and US.
Three ground-breaking, international companies which came to London for Globe to Globe will return for a limited number of performances as part of wider international tours. We will be welcoming back the Isango Ensemble from South Africa with their delightful Venus and Adonis; from Georgia, the Marjanishvili Theatre return with their wildly imaginative As You Like It; and the internationally recognized Belarus Free Theatre bring back their production of King Lear. One final international element of the theatre season will be Footsbarn, bringing Indian Tempest.
