About

Shakespeare's Globe productions of As You Like It, Love's Labour's Lost and Romeo & Juliet are offered in this exclusive limited edition box set.

Contents:
As You Like It
Brendon Hughes, Jack Laskey, Trevor Martin, Jamie Parker, Naomi Frederick, Laura Rogers, Dominic Rowan, Gregory Gudgeon, Sean Kearns
Director: Thea Sharrock
Choreography: Fin Walker

Thea Sharrock’s irresistible new production of Shakespeare’s popular romantic comedy As You Like It stirs wit, sentiment, intrigue and love into a charming confection which challenges the traditional rules of romance.

Naomi Frederick's superb Rosalind is a woman of wit and intelligence... Laskey's Orlando is equally bewitched, bothered and bewildered, and the playfulness between the two is a pleasure” - The Guardian

Love’s Labour’s Lost
Philip Cumbus, Trystan Gravelle, William Mannering, Jack Farthing, Michelle Terry, Thomasin R, Jade Anouka, Siân Robins-Grace
Director: Dominic Dromgoole
Choreography: Siân Williams

Using every kind of verbal gymnastics to poke fun, Shakespeare’s most intellectual comedy Love’s Labour’s Lost is brought to hilarious life in Dominic Dromgoole’s highly entertaining production, rich in visual humour and sexual innuendo.

Dominic Dromgoole’s zestful production succeeds in captivating the audience to a degree that I would not have thought possible… It’s a treat” - The Independent

Romeo & Juliet
Andrew Vincent, Ellie Kendrick, Ian Redford, Miranda Foste, Philip Cumbus, Tom Stuart, Michael O’Hagan, Holly Atkins, Adetomiwa Edun, Jack Farthing
Director: Dominic Dromgoole / Choreography: Siân Williams

Dominic Dromgoole’s production of Romeo & Juliet brings refreshing clarity to one of Shakespeare’s most famous and best-loved tragedies. Ellie Kendrick, a truly youthful Juliet, and Adetomiwa Edun, a boyish Romeo, head an excellent cast whose period costumes point to the timelessness of parental disapproval, adolescent temperament, rivalry and violence.

"Dromgoole is blessed with a smashing pair of young lovers. Adetomiwa Edun's Romeo is fresh, cheeky, light on his feet and full of the ebullience of young love..."- Daily Telegraph

- Cast gallery and famous speeches.
