Sir Mark Rylance will return to Westminster Abbey with a company of 23 actors bringing the words of William Shakespeare to life for six special performances in April.
Join their company of actors for three nights only, as they create an unexpected interactive world within this sacred space.
Consider the war-weary soldier or the hapless lover, behold a great Monarch or bide awhile with a lone and prayerful soul as you explore the Abbey on this special evening.
The performance, All Places that the Eye of Heaven Visits is a collection of fleeting and intimate encounters with Shakespeare’s drama, poetry and song beneath the soaring ribs of Westminster Abbey.
During the performance, you will move around between actors and areas at your own pace, but there are various spots within the Abbey where you’ll be able to pause, have a seat and take in the ancient building.
The performances take place on:
- Thursday 26th April at 6.30pm and 8.30pm
- Friday 27th April at 6.30pm and 8.30pm
- Saturday 28th April at 6.30pm and 8.30pm
Tickets, price at £37, will on sale from 29th January via the Shakespeare’s Globe box office at www.shakespearesglobe.com
