The Comedy of Errors

Shakespeare, Drama, West End

  • Rating: 3/5

Still one of the daftest plays ever written, Shakespeare’s giddy proto-farce ‘The Comedy of Errors’ is, on the face of it, made for the bawdy confines of the Globe. And when Blanche McIntyre’s production hits a sweet spot – as it undoubtedly does for...

Doctor Scroggy's War

Drama, West End

  • Rating: 3/5

Would it be controversial to say that the only two playwrights who’ve really cracked writing for the Globe are William Shakespeare and Howard Brenton? Okay, the former’s kind of a given. But Brenton’s ‘Anne Boleyn’ is the one great modern play to have...

Julius Caesar

Shakespeare, Drama, West End

  • Rating: 4/5
  • Critics' choice

With its boisterous productions and 700 cheapo standing tickets, Shakespeare’s Globe is the only theatre in London that positively encourages baying mobs. And the power of the mob is something director Dominic Dromgoole taps into deftly for a ‘Julius...

West End, Drama

Notoriously funny 'One Man, Two Guvnors' playwright Richard Bean pens a new play as part of Shakespeare's Globe's 2014 season. A co-production between Max Stafford-Clark's Out of Joint company and the Globe, this piece seems less of a comedy and more...

Enjoyed the Tour at the globe. The guide for the tour was quite amusing and funny. Lovely place.

Went to England in 2000 for the first time just to see the Globe - what a fantastic experience! I have been back several times and sat through 3 plays one day last July. I recommend it to everyone who is in town for more than a day or two.


WE love our visit to the Globe. The guide was fantastic. We enjoy the guided tour and love the lay out theatre. Absolutelly fantastic.


Visiting the Globe is a highlight of any trip to the capital and I recommend the standing tickets to be at the heart of the action!
