Brendan O’Hea will direct the tour of eight actors with The Merchant of Venice, The Taming of the Shrew and Twelfth Night. The three plays will open at the Globe and then start the tour at Chilham Castle before setting out on summer tour across the UK and Europe.
The Merchant of Venice will be the first performance in the grounds of Chilham Castle followed by Twelfth Night as a matinee on Saturday and then The Taming of the Shrew on the Saturday evening.
On Sunday the audience will have the chance to vote for their choice of play for the matinee, mimicking a tradition from Shakespeare’s day.
The running time will be approx 2 hours plus an interval.
