The Two Noble Kinsmen at Shakespeare’s Globe

Southwark Carers have 2 pairs of tickets for the Saturday matinee performance on Tuesday 29th May at 2pm.

How long is forever? When the imprisoned Palamon and Arcite vow eternal friendship, they don’t expect that anything will come between them. But then from their cell window they see the beautiful Emilia, and their priorities take a sudden and violent turn. In this late romance, Fletcher and Shakespeare examine love in all its fluid and complex forms.

Inspired by the play’s Morris language and references, The Two Noble Kinsmenis set in pastoral ‘Merrie England’ and brought to life with original music composed by acclaimed folk musician Eliza Carthy, and dance choreographed by Ewan Wardrop.

‘The invitation to direct a play with so little stage history comes with great dollops of intrigue, relish and excitement. It is described in the Arden Shakespeare as ‘a Jacobean dramatisation of a medieval English tale based on an Italian romance version of a Latin epic about one of the oldest and most tragic Greek legends’!

This production will delight the ear with words and melodies. We’ll have merry May Day capers, and I don’t know how many dances there’ll be, but methinks the more the merrier. Come along, join in, and add to the history of a play that includes some of the last words Shakespeare ever wrote for the stage.’

These tickets are in the yard (standing), please be aware that the Globe has no roof and performances are subject to weather.
