Shakespeare’s Globe has taken the difficult but responsible decision to close our doors to the public until further notice, ceasing performances, education activities and tours.
As you can imagine, this has been one of the hardest decisions we have had to make, but a necessary one as we consider the safety and well-being of both the public, staff and volunteers.
We hope to open the doors to our wooden O as soon as possible – but in this unprecedented time for theatre, and as a charity that receives no annual government subsidy, we are in desperate need of donations to help us to continue to strive in the future.
We ask at this time of huge risk to our beloved theatre that you donate if you can. Any amount, large or small, will be hugely appreciated.
With love, solidarity and thanks to you all from the whole Globe family.
Ifwhen we meet again, why, we shall smile
For the 23rd year in a row, the Comedy Store Players take over the Globe stage with no idea of what you, the audience, will suggest for their improvised sketches and songs.
This talented troupe always fill the Globe with the sound of laughter. The Players will close the show with a six-person, improvised ‘Shakespeare playlet’, with a title suggested by the crowd.
