Shakespeare’s Globe makes a triumphant return to Hong Kong with a trio of plays exploring the themes of refuge and displacement from the September 24th to 29th. Take part in Shakespeare’s Globe democratic theatrical experiment, a tradition dating from the 16th Century where audiences have the power to vote for the performance they watch.
Presented by ABA Productions, Hong Kong will see Shakespeare’s Globe return to Asia, to bring back this thrilling experience of Audience Choice to choose amongst three plays. 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.
The audiences will have the choice between Pericles, The Comedy of Errors and Twelfth Night to cast their votes in true Shakespearean fashion by cheering and by applause – the rules are simple, the loudest cheer wins, and the actions starts straight away!
The company of eight actors will have toured all over the UK and Europe before their arrival in Hong Kong.
Led by director Brendan O’Hea, who is pleased to be back on the road with the Touring Ensemble and sharing the spirit of the Globe across the world with, ‘clear storytelling which brings Shakespeare to all.’
