Quarantine Period Just Got More Cultural Thanks To Shakespeare. This Is How.

“Life … is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.” ― William Shakespeare,

Shakespeare’s Globe is going to make self isolating just a tad bit better, as it becomes the latest London theatre to give viewers free content. The iconic playhouse has its own streaming platform, called the Globe Player, and while before it was rather expensive, now a full English-language Shakespeare play per fortnight available for free. The first of this is ‘Hamlet’, and then from there on, every single production from the 2012 Globe to Globe series will be made free.

Here’s the full list with their dates:

‘Hamlet’ (2018), April 6-19

‘Romeo & Juliet’ (2009), April 20-May 3

‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ (2013), May 4-17

‘The Winter’s Tale’ (2018), May 18-31

‘The Two Noble Kinsmen’ (2018), June 1-14

‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ (2019), June 15-28
