Shakespeare’s elemental comedy about a shipwreck, magic, reckoning and redemption is being brought to life by the Globe Ensemble, including: Peter Bourke, Rachel Hannah Clarke, George Fouracres, Nadi Kemp-Sayfi and Ciaran O’Brien.
Holmes has had audiences flocking to the wooden ‘O’ before, most recently with his 2021 summer season productions: a colourful take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a raucously entertaining Twelfth Night.
This year marks the Globe’s 25th anniversary and the theatre’s first full summer season since 2019.
Artistic director Michelle Terry says: ‘For our summer season 2022, our magnificent wooden "O" will hold the past and present, the personal and political, power, pomp, pageantry and passion. The world beyond may be uncertain, but these plays are sure to guide us through the summer days with hope, strength, and purpose – and of course with people. Above all else there will be people. People being together, with other people. Summer Season 2022 at Shakespeare’s Globe. It’s going to be epic.’
