Drawing together two momentous anniversaries: the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and the centenary of the First World War, our next Globe season, entitled Arms and the Man, will include new productions of Shakespeare’s Antony & Cleopatra, Julius Caesar directed by Dominic Dromgoole, The Comedy of Errors directed by Blanche McIntyre, and a revisiting of Lucy Bailey’s 2006 production of Titus Andronicus.
The season will also bring four new write plays: Doctor Scroggy’s War by Howard Brenton, Holy Warriors by David Eldridge, Simon Armitage’s The Last Days of Troy and Richard Bean’s Pitcairn.
Next year’s touring productions will see the start of the global tour of Hamlet, a revival of this year’s King Lear, a mid-scale reworking of Dominic Dromgoole’s 2013 A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Much Ado About Nothing.
As part of our international Globe to Globe programme, Deafinitely Theatre will return to stage A Midsummer Night’s Dream in British Sign Language and Theatre Arpana will present All’s Well That Ends Well in Gujarati. Rakatá will stage Lope de Vega’s classic Punishment Without Revenge in Spanish.

I saw the 2006 Titus Andronicus - it was fantastic!
