World Premiere of Liberty

 From 31 August the Globe is premiering Liberty, a new play by the acclaimed 
dramatic poet Glyn Maxwell.

The French Revolution is four years old when Gamelin, an ambitious young artist, 
is made a magistrate for the ruling forces. How strong will the ties of love and 
friendship prove when he is given power over life and death, and the new 
republic plunges from high idealism to state terror?

Liberty is a thrilling adaptation of Anatole France's 1912 novel Les Dieux ont 
Soif and runs for 13 performances only.

For all performances we are offering our e-subscribers best available seats for 
just 15 GBP (usually up to 33 GBP). Call the Globe Box Office on 020 7401 9919 
and quote 'Liberty 15 GBP'. Offer not available online.

Hamlet at Midnight - but who?

At midnight on Saturday 6 September Tim Carroll and The Factory bring their 
unique production of Hamlet to the Globe Theatre for a special anniversary 
performance.

For the past year The Factory have performed a completely new production of 
Shakespeare's great tragedy each week. Every actor learns multiple parts but it 
is the audience that dictates the actual casting on the night. The staging is 
improvised in each venue. The only props used are items brought in by the audience.
