SHAKESPEARE’S GLOBE ON SCREEN @ SHOWCASE

The award winning Globe on Screen returns to Showcase Peterborough, with the 2013 season captured live and screened in its entirety with three blockbuster stage productions including Henry V, The Taming of the Shrew, and the Olivier-nominated Twelfth Night.

The season kicks off with Henry V shown on Monday June 3 at 7pm and Wednesday June 5 at 2.30pm. Shakespeare’s masterpiece of the turbulence of war and peace is directed by the Globe’s Artistic Director Dominic Dromgoole, and is a compelling exploration of what it means to be English with the persona of a charismatic but conflicted King at its heart.


Jamie Parker returns to the Globe in the title role after his turn as Prince Hal in Henry IV Parts 1 & 2. Jamie has previously starred in the film and stage version of the History Boys alongside James Corden and Dominic Cooper, and went on to a role opposite Tom Cruise in Valkyrie before returning to lead roles at the Globe and the National Theatre.

2012’s sell out performance of Twelfth Night follows on Monday July 1 and Wednesday July 3. The production stars multi Olivier and Tony award winner Mark Rylance in the role of Olivia opposite actor and presenter Stephen Fry’s Malvolio, who makes his first return to the stage after 17 years to huge critical acclaim.

Twelfth Night is an all-male Globe ‘Original Practices’ production that aims to replicate as closely as possible the music, costumes, dance and scenery of Shakespeare’s time. The all-star cast also includes Johnny Flynn in the role of Viola, and Roger Lloyd Pack, best known for his roles in Only Fools and Horses and The Vicar of Dibley, as Sir Andrew Aguecheek.

The Globe on Screen season concludes with The Taming of the Shrew on Monday July 29 and Wednesday July 31. Shakespeare’s notorious battle of the sexes has one of theatre’s great screwball double acts in the shape of Katherina, played by Olivier Award winning Samantha Spiro, opposite Simon Paisley Day’s Petruchio. Directed by Toby Frow the production is a riotous mix of verbal dexterity and slapstick as the duo confuse and outwit each other right up to the play’s controversial conclusion.

Audiences at Showcase Peterborough will have the opportunity to experience the world famous stage from the comfort of their cinema seat in high definition and full surround sound, starting with the superb production of Henry V on Monday June 3.
