Presented by ABA Productions and Shakespeare’s Globe

September 24th – 29th 2019
The Hong Kong Jockey Club Amphitheatre, The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts

Shakespeare’s Globe presents a trio of plays exploring the themes of refuge and displacement, The Comedy of Errors, Pericles and Twelfth Night. Taking on multiple roles across all three plays, the company will unravel these timeless tales of those who have crossed seas, lost their families, and are finding out what belonging truly means to them.

What’s it like to go to the theatre and not know what you’re going to see? Take part in Shakespeare’s Globe’s democratic theatrical experiment to find out! It will be up to you to vote for which of the three plays on offer you want to see. The rules are simple: the loudest cheer wins, and the action starts straight away!

Director Brendan O’Hea:

I’m so pleased to be back on the road with the Touring Ensemble, transporting the spirit of the Globe around the world with simple, clear storytelling which brings Shakespeare to all. This year we’ll be setting out across the UK, Europe and beyond performing Shakespeare’s refuge plays: three stories of displacement, scattered families and what it means to be at home. At a time in which so many people, communities and whole countries are wrestling with their sense of belonging, there couldn’t be a better time to journey out with this particular trio of plays. And, like the Elizabethan touring players before us, we will leave the choice of play to the most powerful person in the room: the audience.

The running time is approximately 2 hours 15 minutes with one interval. The show will be performed in English.
