The Pop-Up Globe Summer Season 2018/19
After performing to an astonishing 450,000 people in just two years, Pop-up Globe – the world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of one of the greatest theatres in history, the second Globe – is back this summer with a new season of unmissable productions.

In a post-Weinstein world, this season presents Shakespeare’s ultimate exploration into the abuse of power with romantic comedy The Taming of the Shrew, dark comedy Richard III, a timely production of controversial comedy Measure for Measure and the most famous play in the canon, Hamlet.

Don’t miss the immersive experience of Shakespeare performed in the space for which it was written.

This isn’t dusty Shakespeare. This is bawdy, hilarious, brutal and bloodsoaked. It is the theatre that changed the world.

New season opens on November 16. Tickets for The Taming of the Shrew and Richard III are on sale now.

The game’s afoot…
