Richard III Tickets – Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre

‘Alack I love myself.’ – Act V, scene 3

It’s time to meet Richard: the man, the myth, the monster. This new production of William Shakespeare’s play, Richard III will unfold at the Globe Theatre this summer, with Artistic Director Michelle Terry taking the title role.

Richard can taste power, but before he can take the throne and place the English crown on his head, he must first set a series of villainous events in motion that will threaten the lives of everyone around him.

Imagine living in a world where self-serving ambition is audaciously pursued and paraded, and murderous crimes are committed and subsequently confessed with irresistible charisma, charm, and impunity. Can anybody stop this pathological narcissist before the English nation is deceived and destroyed?

Elle While returns to the Globe to direct.

Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre was the brainchild of the late actor Sam Wannamaker and is a replica of the original theatre that stood close to the site and originally opened in 1599. The theatre was built from timber and natural materials, including a thatched roof, and has a capacity of 1421 seats.

Remaining authentic to the original design, Shakespeare’s Globe has a large standing area, where patrons can purchase cheap, unreserved standing tickets to watch performances as “Groundlings.” Seating within the venue is arranged into three Galleries which sit on the sides of the thrust stage. Row E in the theatre’s benched seating areas is considered a good choice and offers back support when watching the action. Cushions are also available to hire at the theatre.

The best seats in Shakespeare’s Globe can be found in the central bays of both the Lower and Middle Galleries. As actors usually project to the Middle Gallery and the Lower Gallery sits just above stage height, and offers clear views from the middle rows. , this a very desirable section of the theatre to be in.

Standing in the Yard at the Globe offers a very cheap way of watching the show with tickets in this section unreserved, leaving you free to move around to find the best view. The bays at either side of the stage and seats at the end of rows of the Lower Gallery are slightly restricted due to pillars but still offer a good-value seated experience.

From £8.00
