The Summer of Love at Shakespeare’s Globe opens on Saturday 22 April.
Daniel Kramer will direct Romeo and Juliet in a vibrant, volatile production; Jessica Swale’s joyful, critically acclaimed play about unlikely heroine Nell Gwynn will return to the Globe for a limited run; expect hijinks and bittersweet hilarity from Artistic Director Emma Rice’s production of Twelfth Night; and Emma Rice will also direct Kneehigh Theatre's Tristan & Yseult, blending comedy and live music with grand passions and tender truths.
Associate Director Matthew Dunster takes on Shakespeare’s classic tale of antagonistic romance and madcap humour in Much Ado About Nothing; the notion of familial love will be questioned and torn apart in Nancy Meckler’s production of King Lear. Finally, Tristan Bernays’ bold new ancient history play will tell the story of queen, warrior and rebel Boudica.
Shakespeare's Globe's Summer of Love begins 22 April and runs until 15 October. Tickets from just £5. To view the full season and find out more about the productions, visit the website.
