About

A part of the 2019/2020 season at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse is Women Beware Women. A Woman. A Wife: Married in secret and locked away from other eyes by her new husband. Another Woman. Another Wife. A Daughter: Pressed into marriage and duped into her uncle's bed. A third Woman. A Widow. An Aunt. A Sister: Knows how to operate in a man's world. How do you navigate a society in which women are consciously and unconsciously commodified, coerced and controlled?

Thomas Middleton is often thought to have collaborated with Shakespeare on some of his later works, but as a prolific playwright in his own right, he was no stranger to writing bespoke plays for the private indoor theatres. Women Beware Women is his enduringly relevant exploration of gender power dynamics that uncovers the savage underbelly of desire, lust and ambition through the prism of the flamboyant Florentine court. "Oh, the deadly snares That women set for women, without pity Either to soul or honour!"- Act V, scene 2At Sam Wanamaker Playhouse from 21 February 2020 to 18 April 2020, book your Women beware Women tickets today!Please click here to book for the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse 2019/20 season.

Information


The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse is the brand new candlelit indoor theatre, located on the Shakespeare's Globe site and is accessed through the main foyer.

Located on the bank of the River Thames in Bankside's Cultural Quarter, Shakespeare's Globe welcomes thousands of visitors to experience world renowned productions of Shakespeare every day.

Founded by the pioneering American actor and director Sam Wanamaker, Shakespeare's Globe stands a few hundred yards from its original site. Other than concessions to comply with modern day fire regulations, the Globe is as accurate a reconstruction of the 1599 Globe as was possible with the available evidence.

The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre is best accessed on foot. There are excellent footpaths along the river from Waterloo and from Southwark Bridge. The Millennium Footbridge is 50 metres from the Theatre.


NEAREST TUBE STATION: Blackfriars/ Mansion House (10 minute walk). London Bridge / Southwark/ Central Line (15 minute walk).
