Rough Magic Tickets – Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

‘By the pricking of my thumbs, something SILLY this way comes…’ – Macbeth, Act IV, scene 1 (kind of…)

Following on from last Summer’s Olivier Award-nominated, ‘fantastically funny’ ★★★★★ (Broadway World), Midsummer Mechanicals, Shakespeare’s Globe, and Splendid Productions now present Rough Magic, a brand-new family show in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse this summer.

‘Witches’ spells, ghosts galore, Feisty fairies, monsters and more!’

Come and join us inside the world of William Shakespeare’s magical characters as Macbeth’s wonderfully wayward Weird Sisters rustle up a wonderfully supernatural and silly adventure of their own.

‘Round about the cauldron go; In the magic creatures throw…’

The Globe’s Director of Education Lucy Cuthbertson and Splendid Productions’ Kerry Frampton and Ben Hales join forces to bring you a magical summertime treat for all ages.

The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse is a small venue located on New Globe Walk, Bankside, close to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and has a capacity of 353 seats.

The theatre is a compact venue and features three levels of seating, the Pit, the Lower Gallery, and the Upper Gallery. Another smaller gallery sits just behind the stage which is occasionally also on sale and the two rows at the back of the Upper Gallery are used as standing spaces. Each section of the theatre comprises benched seating which is arranged on three sides of the stage. Pillars are present both in front of and to the side of some seats in both Galleries which restricts the view of the stage. Patrons suffering from vertigo should be aware that the Upper Gallery is steep offering sharp downward views of the stage but due to the intimate nature of the venue, it is unlikely you will feel disconnected from the action on stage.

The best views of the action at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse are found in the Pit, facing directly at the stage, and as actors often enter and exit down the aisles, these are considered to be the best seats in the venue.

Value for money can be found in the Upper Gallery which has cheap seats which are used as standing spaces. This section is not suitable for anyone under 4ft in height and patrons may also need to lean slightly forward at times. Good value seating is located at the rear of the Lower Gallery where you can also benefit from being able to lean back on the wall behind.

From £18.00
