A new production from Lucy Bailey brings a riotous garden party to the Globe

“You know that Spring has really arrived when the Globe throws open it doors with the first play in the summer season. This year that honour belongs to Shakespeare’s rather lovely play of autumnal love sparked by the attractions and antipathies of the witty Beatrice and Benedick in a production directed by Lucy Bailey whose Witness for the Prosecution has become a long stayer at County Hall and who produced a brilliantly gory Titus Andronicus at this address. It’s more likely to be laughter and tears rather than blood that run in this tragi-comedy that is the opener in an enticing season which includes Kathryn Hunter as King Lear, Hannah Khalil’s rewrite of Henry VIII and Charlie Josephine’s I, Joan, which remakes the myths and winkles out the truths about Joan of Arc.”

Tickets from £6

Overview

After her seminal production of Titus Andronicus, Lucy Bailey returns to the Globe to direct our 2022 Globe Ensemble.

‘I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow, than a man swear he loves me.’ - Act I, scene 1

April 1945, Northern Italy. Following years of war, Leonata and her daughters reopen their battle-scarred palazzo for a celebration to welcome the partisan soldiers back from recent hard-fought victories.

Young lovers Hero and Claudio and proud singletons Beatrice and Benedick have their limits tested like never before in a wild mix of games, pranks and mischievous plots.
