Metamorphoses

Metamorphoses

A hundred props. Four actors. One theatre. And you, the audience.

Overview

Metamorphoses is a playful new piece of theatre inspired by Ovid’s powerful collection of myths, written bespoke to our candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse by the Globe’s first writers-in-residence in nearly four centuries.

Strap in for a rollercoaster of epic impossibilities.

From the everyday to the astonishing, and the ordinary to the unimaginable, Ovid’s stories explore the power of transformation, the resilience of humans and the wonder of life. They were a great inspiration to Shakespeare and over 2000 years later, are reimagined for our world now. Expect anarchy, shape shifting and a burning chariot of fire.

Content warning: Contains strong language and themes of violence and sexual assault
