Enjoy Shakespere, direct from the iconic Globe Theatre for Free (34 language productions too)
The latest London theatre to step up to the plate with free high-quality content is Shakespeare’s Globe. The iconic Elizabethan-style playhouse already had its own public streaming platform in the form of Globe Player, but watching it was quite expensive, with productions rented or purchased at individual prices that usually exceed a month’s full access to many TV streaming platforms. Well guess what, that’s all changed.
Now, every fortnight you can watch a full English-language Shakespeare play for free.
Shakespeare's Globe also plans to make available all 34 productions from its 2012 Globe to Globe series. That's a Korean ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, a Macedonian ‘Henry VI Part 3’, a Polish ‘Macbeth’, a Hebrew ‘The Merchant of Venice’ and so on and so forth.
Here’s the full list of free-to-stream English-language plays we know of to date:
‘The Two Noble Kinsmen’ (2018), May 4-17
‘The Winter’s Tale’ (2018), May 18-31
‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ (2019), June 1-14
‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ (2013), June 15-28
You can sign up for all this on the Globe Player website.
