Shakespeare Untold at Edinburgh Fringe (5 – 31 August):
Shakespeare’s Globe and Seabright Productions present Shakespeare Untold – the stories you know from the characters you don’t. Specially developed for family audiences, The Party Planner’s Tale and The Piemaker’s Tale re-tell the stories of Romeo & Juliet and Titus Andronicus in 50 thrilling minutes. These are the first pieces of work by Shakespeare’s Globe ever to be staged at the Edinburgh Fringe. More information from The Globe.
If you can, a trip to The Globe, or to Edinburgh in August sounds called for.
We don’t yet know which of these shows will be available in world-wide cinemas, or for streaming, but we’d be astonished if y’all don’t get the opportunity to see Michelle Terry as Rosalind in As You Like It. As soon as we hear, we’ll let you know.
