Shakespeare's Globe Theatre Announces New Season

The Edges of RomeShakespeare's Globe Theatre 2006

2006, my first year as Artistic Director of the Globe, is a year of thrilling new beginnings. We aim to thicken the air with the sinuous and muscular poetry of Coriolanus; with the macabre humour and Grand Guignol of Titus Andronicus; with the relentless on-rushing sublimity of Antony & Cleopatra, and with the delirious farcical mayhem of The Comedy of Errors. To add to the Shakespeare, we welcome two new voices to the Globe: Simon Bent with Under The Black Flag, his rampaging yarn around the 17th-century pirate world, and Howard Brenton, with In Extremis, his telling of a love story from 12th-century Paris, that of Abelard and Heloise.
