Subject:      2011 Season Preview at Shakespeare's Globe 

2011 Theatre Season announced 

In 2011, Shakespeare's Globe will celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James 
Bible which was completed in 1611, and the enduring power of dramatic language, with 
a season entitled The Word is God. Priority booking will open in January, 
exclusively for Friends of Shakespeare's Globe, with public booking opening in mid-
February. 

The season will open with a cover-to-cover reading of The Bible from the Globe stage 
over Easter weekend, followed by Hamlet which plays at the Globe before embarking on 
a Summer tour of the UK and Europe. Also playing at the Globe before touring will be 
As You Like It. All's Well That Ends Well will be performed at the Globe for the 
first time, followed by another comedy, Much Ado About Nothing. Christopher 
Marlowe's Doctor Faustus is followed by a revival of Howard Brenton's 2010 hit Anne 
Boleyn, whilst The Globe Mysteries will take a fresh, contemporary look at the 
traditional Mystery Plays. The season will end in rude and rowdy style with the 
world premiere of Chris Hannan's satire on modern living, The God of Soho.  
Performance dates, casting and other company information will be announced in the 
New Year. 

Winter Wassail - a glittering New Year Celebration performance, or you're looking 
for a way to usher in the New Year in style, why not enjoy a magnificent concert 
with the world-renowned Gabrieli Consort & Players at Shakespeare's Globe between 
January 1 - 3?  Inspired by Shakespeare, Hardy and Chaucer, Winter Wassail will 
feature a wealth of songs and words to shoo away the darkness, shake the slumber out 
of nature and bless the arrival of the New Year.
