Play On Shakespeare

Play On Shakespeare, the not-for-profit organization dedicated to exploring the world of Shakespeare in performance through translation and adaptation, has various UK events—in London and Sunderland—as part of its summer 2023 season.

Shakespeare’s Globe on July 12 at Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, London gives audiences a chance to be a part of the Globe’s exploration of early modern and contemporary performance culture.

In Romeo and Juliet at Theatre Space North East, Sunderland July 13–16, a young friar arrives in Verona, hoping to bring peace. Merging contemporary Sunderland with an ecclesiastical Verona, this production combines a professional cast with community members to bring to light the challenges facing a community.
