Shakespeare Within the Abbey
Mark Rylance and Shakespeare’s Globe return to Westminster Abbey with a company of 22 actors for a unique event celebrating Shakespeare’s birthday.
This unseated production invites you to roam the Abbey. As you explore, a beautiful and unexpected world unfolds in this sacred space. Consider the war-weary soldier or the hapless lover in the nave; behold a monarch in the transept or sit awhile and overhear a prayer or sonnet.
Audiences will experience fleeting, contemplative and intimate encounters with Shakespeare's drama, poetry, dance and song beneath the soaring ribs of the magnificent Abbey.
The Cellarium Café and Terrace will be open until 6:30pm on 25th, 26th and 27th April for pre-show drinks.
Tickets for all performances can be purchased on the Shakespeare's Globe website.
