Sir Mark Rylance returns to Westminster Abbey

Sir Mark Rylance will return to Westminster Abbey with a company of actors bringing the words of William Shakespeare to life for six special performances in April.

All Places that the Eye of Heaven Visits will take place on the evenings of Thursday 26th, Friday 27th and Saturday 28th April, and will feature a cast of 23 actors from Shakespeare’s Globe theatre.

During the performances, audience members will move through the Abbey, encountering the actors performing extracts from some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays and poetry.

Tickets, priced £37.00, will be on sale from Monday 29th January via the Shakespeare’s Globe box office.
