Presented by ABA Productions and Shakespeare’s Globe

September 25th – 30th 2018
The Hong Kong Jockey Club Amphitheatre, The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts

Shakespeare’s Globe returns to Hong Kong 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.

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.

A 10% discount is available for groups of ten or more. For CORPORATE and SCHOOL BOOKINGS, please call 2547 7150 or email info@aba-productions.com

Running time is approximately 2 hours 15 minutes including an interval.
The show will be performed in English

‘The combination of Shakespeare, the Globe and touring ticks every box for me. The chance to share those glorious words and my experience of playing that beautiful theatre with audiences throughout the world excites me beyond measure. And I’m relishing the opportunity to direct three of Shakespeare’s most popular plays in a unique and unpredictable presentation.’

「是次演出包括了所有最精彩的元素-莎士比亞丶莎士比亞環球劇團,以及巡迴演出!我對能夠在這個美麗的舞台上,向來自世界各地的觀眾表演多個經典的劇目丶朗讀如此優雅的台詞,感到難以言諭的興奮!我會盡請享受以這個最獨一無二丶無法預料的形式,去導演莎士比亞最為人津津樂道的作品!」
