As one of the greatest writers of our time, Shakespeare's plays are timeless creations that are so well-loved they have stood the test of time and are still today being re-made and re-imagined as contemporary, political, and even comedic performances. Here are our top Shakespeare productions across the UK:
Royal Shakespeare Company 2019 Season
The Royal Shakespeare Company return with three Shakespeare productions in an electrifying season that sparks with striking resonance. Featuring a company of 27 actors, they boldly explore the themes of morality, love, power and gender.
With a new production of Measure For Measure that still feels so urgent today; a playful and imaginative rendition of As You Like It; and the ultimate battle of the sexes in the re-imagined The Taming Of The Shrew, where the women are in charge; you cannot miss these landmark interpretations of Shakespeare's iconic productions.
Illyria's The Tempest at Westminster Abbey
In their 28th open-air touring season, and renowned all over the world for their clarity, quality and ingenuity, Illyria return to their home-turf with the Shakespearean comedy, The Tempest. Illyria is an intrepid band of five actors who perform Shakespeare’s plays, entirely uncut, direct from the First Folio, the most authoritative edition of Shakespeare’s plays. It’s swift, it’s polished and it’s spoken beautifully.
Shakespeare Rose Theatre at Blenheim Palace
Following its highly acclaimed inaugural season in York, Europe’s first-ever pop up Shakespearean theatre arrives at Blenheim Palace for summer 2019. Four of William Shakespeare's most popular plays will transport audiences to the intimate atmosphere of an Elizabethan playhouse, with plenty of breath-taking, spine-tingling and heart-stopping moments. The plays are Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Richard III.
A Midsummer Night's Dream at Regent Park's Open Air Theatre
Shakespeare's fantastical fable of desire, confusion, jealousy and growing up. Through live music, playful adventure and physical invention, see the lovers' world transformed into a place of magic, laughter and healing, as we journey into the woods.
