Shakespeare's Globe Theatre announces productions for 2011

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre has announced productions for its 2011 Season.

Full repertoire dates will be announced soon.

Public booking opens on 14 February 2011.

In 2011 Shakespeare’s Globe will celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible which was completed in 1611, with a season entitled The Word is God. The theatre season will commence with a cover-to-cover reading of The Bible and a small-scale touring production of Hamlet, presenting a rare opportunity to experience the two foundation stones of the modern English language back-to-back. Around the Easter weekend a simple, unstaged recital of The Bible will only be interrupted by performances of Hamlet – widely celebrated as Shakespeare’s intellectual masterpiece – which opens at the Globe on Shakespeare’s birthday, 23 April, before it takes to the road for a UK and European tour.
