Find out details of the four plays in Shakespeare’s Globe's upcoming summer 2023 season. This year marks Shakespeare’s First Folio's 400th anniversary.

“Without this collection, 18 of Shakespeare's plays would have been lost forever. Theatre remains one of the greatest and safest ways for a society to debate with itself and ask questions,” said artistic director Michelle Terry.

The season kicks off with Terry playing Puck in a new adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Elle While directs the production, with performances from 27 April to 12 August.

Sean Holmes then directs The Comedy of Errors, with performances from 12 May to 29 July.

Next, Abigail Graham makes her Globe directorial debut with Macbeth, running from 21 July to 28 October.

The season concludes with Ellen McDougall at the helm of As You Like It, with performances from 18 August to 29 October.

Upcoming shows at Shakespeare's Globe include Henry V, Titus Andronicus, and The Winter's Tale. Find out more about Shakespeare plays in London.
