Dominic Dromgoole to be Globe's Artistic Director

Dominic Dromgoole is to be Shakespeare’s Globe's second Artistic Director.

Peter Kyle, Chief Executive said today; “I am delighted to announce the appointment of Dominic Dromgoole as the new Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe. Dominic has enjoyed considerable success in a career embracing periods at the Bush Theatre, The Old Vic and, for the last seven years, as Artistic Director of Oxford Stage Company. I know Dominic to be a wholly committed man of the theatre, with a passion for Shakespeare and a strong desire to engage with what he has described as ‘the maverick energy’ of the Globe. We all look forward to Dominic’s own maverick energy being brought to bear on our 2006 Theatre Season which he will begin programming immediately and to welcoming him when he formally takes up the post at the end of the year.”

Sir Michael Perry, Chairman, Shakespeare Globe Trust said today; “The Globe Theatre has enjoyed enormous success over the past ten years under the inspirational leadership of Mark Rylance. We now look forward to welcoming Dominic Dromgoole as our new Artistic Director and have every confidence that he will lead the Globe to ever greater heights.”

MARK RYLANCE anounced in September 2004 that he was quitting as Artistic Director of SHAKESPEARE'S GLOBE at an end at the close of his tenth year, December 2005. He was appointed Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe in August 1995 and took up the post in January 1996.

Looking for the best seats...
