Summary

Globe for All

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Patricia McGregor

Lord, what fools these mortals be!

Fall under the spell of Shakespeare’s most uproarious and popular comedy. Filled with magic, humor, music, and magnificent poetry, this dream unfolds in an enchanted forest where fairies play tricks on unsuspecting lovers, and bumbling actors are transformed beyond their wildest imaginings. Add to this a secret potion that grants love at first sight, and anything can—and does—happen! Globe for All is the centerpiece of The Old Globe’s commitment to creating public value by making theatre matter to more people. It tours free professional Shakespeare to community-based venues throughout San Diego County.
