Shakespeare on Tour 

For the first time in four hundred years, a group of actors will tour a Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet, out of the Globe theatre. Like the Elizabethan players before them, they will be performing not in theatres, but in a collection of the UK's most picturesque and historically resonant settings. As a climax, they will present a one-off performance at the 'home of cricket', Lords.

The troupe of actors will entertain outdoor audiences with a stripped down version of Shakespeare's classic love story, true to the old principles of touring theatre. Recent historical evidence has indicated that touring was regularly undertaken by Shakespeare's theatre company.
