Shakespeare's Globe Touring Company
In the Channel Islands for four nights only
Shakespeare’s Globe present a trio of plays exploring the themes of refuge and displacement.
Taking on multiple roles across all three plays, the company will unravel these timeless tales of those who have crossed seas and lost their families, are seeking lost homes, and finding out what belonging truly means to them.
For a truly Shakespearean experience, on Saturday night we’re giving you to take part in Shakespeare’s Globe democratic theatrical experiment. It’ll 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!
The performances on 17, 18 and 19 July are seated performances with a fixed programme. Saturday night, the Audience Choice night, is an informal evening with no fixed seating or programme. You decide what you watch.

17 July: The Comedy of Errors
Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both named Antipholus) and one pair of estranged twin servants (both named Dromio), both pairs separated at sea. Add a dash of mistaken identity and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos.
18 July: Pericles
The spirit of fairy tale is never far from the surface of Pericles, the first of Shakespeare’s late romances. Imbued with music, miracles, and the constant presence of the sea, this little-seen work submits its hero to a series of tragedies that culminate in something quite the opposite.
19 July: Twelfth Night
Filled with unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with subtle poetry, expressed through some of Shakespeare’s most exquisite songs.
20 July: AUDIENCE CHOICE
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 these three plays you want to see. The rules are simple: the loudest cheer wins, and the action starts straight away. Actors call it ‘terrifying’, audiences say it’s ‘exhilarating.’ So scream and shout as loud as you can for the play you want to see. This is an experience that you do not want to miss.
