Nestled between the steel bridges and skyscrapers of modern day London sits the world’s most iconic theatre, The Globe. Every year hundreds of thousands of theatre fans from around the world make their pilgrimage to the venue, which has been faithfully restored to replicate the original building destroyed by fire in 1613. Here, audiences experience Shakespeare’s plays as they were originally intended – rowdy, fun and full of life.
Now for the first time, the Globe Theatre will visit New Zealand with its Globe to Globe world tour of Hamlet. This theatrical adventure, directed by Artistic Director Dominic Dromgoole, aims to take Hamlet to every country in the world. The show’s international cast includes New Zealand’s own Rāwiri Paratene (Whale Rider).
