‘Thy frank election make’
All’s Well That Ends Well, Act 2, Scene 3
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.
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 will choose the play just before the performance is set to begin.
The running time is approximately 2 hours 15 minutes with one interval
