William Shakespeare: Julius Caesar

William Shakespeare: Julius Caesar

Recorded live at the Shakespeare’s Globe, July 2014


George Irving (Julius Caesar), Catherine Bailey (Portia), Sam Cox (Marullus/Caius Ligarius), Anthony Howell (Cassius), Joe Jameson (Octavius Caesar), Luke Thompson (Mark Antony), Tom McKay (Brutus) & Christopher Logan (Casca)

Dominic Dromgoole (director)

Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s tense drama of high politics, one which reveals the emotional currents that flow between men in power, with themes that still resonate even today. Staged in Elizabethan dress with Roman accessories and with music played on period instruments, Dominic Dromgoole’s Globe production is ‘fleet, urgent, exciting and dangerous’ (Financial Times), combining ‘freshness of acting’ (Daily Telegraph) with an expert use of the theatre crowd and space that stylishly underscores Shakespeare’s thrilling dissection of politics in action.

Julius Caesar was the first production performed in the original Globe theatre in 1599

William Shakespeare: Antony and Cleopatra

William Shakespeare: Antony and Cleopatra

Recorded live at the Shakespeare’s Globe, May 2014


Clive Wood (Antony), Eve Best (Cleopatra), Jolyon Coy (Octavius Caesar), Phil Daniels (Enobarbus), Daniel Rabin (Agrippa), Sirine Saba (Charmian) & Ignatious Anthony (Maecenas)

Jonathan Munby (director)

Antony and Cleopatra is Shakespeare’s great historical love story, a tragedy infused with comic elements that explores the conflicting claims of sex and power, expressed in poetry of breath-taking beauty.

Conveying the polarities of Rome and Egypt, Jonathan Munby’s ‘exquisitely understated’ (Independent) Globe production effortlessly captures the play’s cinematic rhythm, with Clive Wood cast as a ruffian, ‘indomitable’ Antony (Financial Times) and Eve Best ‘restlessly sensual’ (Guardian) in her lauded portrayal of the mercurial Cleopatra.

William Shakespeare: Titus Andronicus

William Shakespeare: Titus Andronicus

Recorded live at the Shakespeare’s Globe, July 2014


William Houston (Titus Andronicus), Indira Varma (Tamora), Obi Abili (Aaron), Flora Spencer-Longhurst (Lavinia), Ian Gelder (Marcus Andronicus), Matthew Needham (Saturninus), Stefan Donnelly (Bassianus/Clown), Dyfan Dwyfor (Lucius)

Lucy Bailey (director)

Contains very strong scenes of sexual violence and gore.

The smash hit of Shakespeare’s early career, Titus Andronicus is one of the Bard’s most experimental works, a revenge tale of the utmost brutality that centres around the honoured Roman general who fatally refuses to show mercy to the eldest son of Tamora, Queen of the Goths, whom he has defeated in war. Hailed as 'one of the darkest and most seminal productions in the Globe’s history' (Daily Telegraph), director Lucy Bailey’s staging of the Roman tragedy sees the great London theatre transformed into a temple of death, one in which swathes of black fabric coalesce with horrific violence and stand-out performances to create shatteringly powerful drama.

Filmed in 2014, this revival of Lucy Bailey’s gory 2006 production of Shakespeare’s revenge tragedy had audiences fainting in the aisles.

Shakespeare’s bloodiest play features scenes of rape, mutilation, murder and cannibalism.

Extra features: A Cast Gallery.

‘‘You leave the theatre feeling both harrowed to the marrow and disconcertingly elated.’’ The Daily Telegraph

‘‘Lucy Bailey's blackly comical production is the best I've seen.’’ The Times

‘‘Exceptional.’’ The Independent

As his father prepares to defend his crown, Prince Hal is languishing in the taverns and brothels of London, revelling in the company of his friend, the notorious Sir John Falstaff.

With the onset of war, Hal and Falstaff are thrust into the brutal reality of the battlefield, where Hal must confront his responsibilities to family and throne.

Royal Shakespeare Company, Gregory Doran (director)

King Henry's health is failing as a second rebellion against his reign threatens to surface.

Intent on securing his legacy, he is uncertain that his son Hal is a worthy heir, believing him more concerned with earthly pleasures than the responsibility of rule.

Sir John Falstaff is sent to the countryside to recruit fresh troops. Amongst the unwitting locals, opportunities for embezzlement and profiteering prove impossible to resist as Falstaff gleefully indulges in the business of lining his own pockets.

As the King's health continues to worsen, Hal must choose between duty and loyalty to an old friend.

William Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

John Light (Oberon / Theseus), Pearce Quigley (Bottom), Michelle Terry (Titania / Hippolyta), Luke Thompson (Lysander), Matthew Tennyson (Puck), Tom Lawrence (Snout), Christopher Logan (Flute) & Sarah MacRae (Helena)

Director Dominic Dromgoole

Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia… When the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies.

Shakespeare put some of his most dazzling dramatic poetry at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.

Michelle Terry won the 2011 Olivier Award for her portrayal of Sylvia in Tribes (Royal Court). Michelle returns to the Globe having previously played the Princess of France in Love’s Labours Lost (2007).

This production uses Renaissance costumes and staging.

Eve Best (director)

When three witches tell Macbeth that he is destined to occupy the throne of Scotland, he and his wife choose to become the instruments of their fate and to kill the first man standing in their path, the virtuous King Duncan. But to maintain his position, Macbeth must keep on killing – first Banquo, his old comrade-in-arms; then, as the atmosphere of guilt and paranoia thickens, anyone who seems to threaten his tyrant’s crown.

From its mesmerising first moments to the last fulfilment of the witches' prophecy, Shakespeare’s gripping account of the profoundest engagement with the forces of evil enthrals the imagination.

This production employs Renaissance costumes and staging.

Directorial debut at the Globe by distinguished theatre, film & TV actress Eve Best.
