Shakespeare Within the Abbey

Shakespeare Within the Abbey

Date Time Location Price

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.


Pre-show drinks

The Cellarium Café and Terrace will be open until 6:30pm on 25th, 26th and 27th April for pre-show drinks.


Tickets

Tickets for all performances can be purchased on the Shakespeare's Globe website.

You are surrounded by history at the Abbey, not like a museum where it’s just displayed, but here you are standing where history has happened.
