Two years. 193,000 miles. 190 countries. One play. For the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth the Globe Theatre undertook an unparalleled journey, to take Hamlet to every country on the planet, to share this beloved play with the entire world. Hamlet Globe to Globe was the brainchild of Dominic Dromgoole, artistic director of the Globe.
Dromgoole, in conversation with broadcaster, Sheena McDonald, will talk about performing in sweltering deserts, ice-cold cathedrals and heaving marketplaces, and how, despite the threat of ambush in Somaliland, an Ebola epidemic in West Africa and political upheaval in Ukraine, the Globe’s players pushed on. Dromgoole shows us the world through the prism of Shakespeare - what the Danish prince means to the people of Sudan, the effect of Ophelia on the citizens of Costa Rica, and how a sixteenth-century play can touch the lives of Syrian refugees.
