Shakespeare's Globe

Shakespeare’s Globe returns to Singapore with three of the playwright’s most popular plays - Twelfth Night, The Merchant of Venice and The Taming of the Shrew.

How did a company tour in Shakespeare’s day? We know that when the theatres closed, a small group of actors, juggling a variety of roles in three or four plays from their extensive repertoire, would leave London and head off on tour. We also know that the choice of play or entertainment was left to the most powerful person of the household.

Cast your vote!

So, following in the tradition of our resident playwright, a company of eight actors will offer audiences a choice of three plays. And also in keeping with tradition – and with thrilling unpredictability – the choice of play will be put back into the hands of the most powerful members of the house: the audience.

Follow in the tradition of a Shakespearean audience and get involved, raise your hands and shout out loud to cast your vote for your favourite play!

Join us this September to watch one of the three plays on a specific date, or attend one of the Audience Choice shows, where you – the audience- will choose the play just before the performance is set to begin.

The Merchant of Venice - In Venice, the epicentre of consumption, speculation and debt, Bassanio borrows money from his friend Antonio to finance his attempt to win the hand of Portia, a wealthy heiress.

Twelfth Night - In the household of the Countess Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged - one by the lovesick Duke Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio.

The Taming of the Shrew - Two wealthy sisters in Padua must be married off. The modest, demure Bianca has no shortage of suitors, but who on earth will take the wild, ungovernable, ‘shrewish’ Kate?

This year, Shakespeare’s Globe will be bringing three shows to Singapore: Twelfth Night, The Merchant of Venice and The Taming of the Shrew, with two of the performances on Saturday that will be decided by you – the audience.

Please double check all information is correct when making your booking and ensure you have selected the correct Performance, Date, Show Time and Pricing.
