Globe goes on UK tour; SHAKESPEARE.

HAKESPEARE'S Globe is on tour and will be performing A Midsummer Night's Dream at The Major Oak in Sherwood Forest.

SAt the moment, Globe on Tour will be visiting just nine venues outside London in 2020. They'll be in Sherwood Forest on Monday, June 1. Through the play, the company of eight actors will explore the relationship between humankind and Mother Nature.

Brendan O'Hea, director, says, "I'm so pleased to be back on the road with the Touring Ensemble, transporting the spirit of the Globe around the world with simple, clear storytelling which brings Shakespeare to all.

"Storytelling and theatre must play a crucial role in offering ways of reimagining the world, creating conditions on stage and off for renewal, belonging, empathy, kindness and an experience that embodies our place in the interconnected web of life."

From the forest of Sherwood to the shores of Guernsey, all venues will be offered a workshop that will give their audiences the chance to learn more about the plays and the natural world. The Globe will also be collaborating with the RSPB, who are making their birdsong radio available to venues as part of their Let Nature Sing campaign that aims to promote environmental awareness.
