Shakespeare’s Globe, like all London theatres, has had to shut up shop during the lockdown so they’ve gone digital instead. As well as loads of filmed performances available to buy or rent, the theatre is streaming some of its most iconic productions for free on the Globe Player. Each play will land fortnightly and be available to watch for free for those two weeks. Here’s the schedule:
Mon 6th – Sun 19th April
Romeo & Juliet, 2009
Mon 20th April – Sun 3rd May
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, 2013
Mon 4th – Sun 17th May
The Winter’s Tale, 2018
Mon 18th – Sun 31st May
The Two Noble Kinsmen, 2018
Mon 1st – Sun 14th June
The Merry Wives of Windsor, 2019
Mon 15th – Sun 28th June
On top of that, all the productions from the theatre’s Globe to Globe series will be available for free, so you can see some of Shakespeare’s classics performed in Japanese, Russian, Hebrew and more. There’s also a new series, Shakespeare & Love in Isolation, on its way featuring artists including Michelle Terry, Sandi Toksvig and Mark Rylance sharing Shakespeare’s words from isolation.
