Be the first to see our new Shakespeare

Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman brings her moving new production of The Winter's Tale to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre from 28 March.

After ripping his family apart with his jealousy, will King Leontes find the child he abandoned before it is too late?

Set across a 16-year span from Mad Men to the moon landings, this play imagines a world where the ghosts of fascist Europe collide with the horrors of The Handmaid’s Tale, before washing up on a joyful seashore.

Join us for our Spring Revel

Our late night festival returns on Saturday 14 March.

Immerse yourself in live music, dancing, feasting and creativity inspired by the natural elements that rule our summer shows. There'll be pop-up performances from our actors and SPARK! drummers, fabulous food and drink, and a showdown at the end of the night that you'll definitely not want to miss.

Last chance to see in Stratford...

As The Winter's Tale starts in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, we say goodbye to our family musical The Boy in the Dress on 8 March.

And in the Swan, both King John and The Whip finish this month on 21 March.

...and beyond...

John Kani and Antony Sher finish their run at Ambassadors Theatre in London on 28 March as Kunene and the King comes to a close.

The Timon of Athens US tour also finishes on 22 March, as Kathryn Hunter reprises her role in Simon Godwin's production alongside a new cast. 

...but there's still plenty to see!

Our three 2019 summer Shakespeares - As You Like It, Measure for Measure and The Taming of the Shrew - are still on tour, reaching Nottingham, Newcastle and Blackpool, and Matilda The Musical continues its run in London.

Especially exciting is the start of Tartuffe at the Rep in Birmingham. After playing in the Swan Theatre in 2018-19, this reimagining of Molière’s classic by award-winning writers Anil Gupta and Richard Pinto moves to its spiritual home for a fortnight of shows.
