The World Shakespeare Festival 2012

Join us next summer to celebrate Shakespeare as the world’s playwright. The World Shakespeare Festival runs from 23 April to November 2012. It is an unprecedented collaboration with leading UK and international arts organisations, produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, and with Globe to Globe, a major international programme produced by Shakespeare’s Globe.

The Royal Shakespeare Theatre is the Royal Shakespeare Company's main theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, with over 1,000 seats around a thrust stage. It re-opened on 24 November 2010 after being closed for redevelopment between 2007 and 2012 as part of a £112.8 million transformation project.

The theatre is a “one-room” theatre, which allows the actors and the audience to share the same space, as they did when Shakespeare’s plays were first produced. The stage reaches out into the audience, who are seated on three sides of it. This one-room theatre creates a more traditional Shakespearean performance area, allowing the audience to draw closer to the actors and creating a more personal theatre experience.
You can book tickets from 10 October.
