An unmissable cultural highlight of Oxford’s summer, Oxford Playhouse and the Bodleian Library welcome back the Globe on Tour with not one, not two, but three shows! Experience theatre as it was performed in Shakespeare’s day, with this unique theatrical event set in the Old Schools Quadrangle, one of the UK’s most glorious locations.

In the Elizabethan era, when the theatres closed, a small group of actors, juggling a variety of roles from their extensive repertoire, would leave London and head off on tour. The choice of play performed was left to the most powerful person in the household. So, in a first for Shakespeare’s Globe, eight actors will offer you, the audience, the chance to choose which of three plays you’d like them to perform  moments before the performance is set to begin. Follow in the tradition of a Shakespearean audience and get involved, raise your hands and shout out loud to cast your vote for your favourite play: The Merchant of VeniceThe Taming of the Shrew or Twelfth Night.
