The Complete Walk

Produced by Shakespeare's Globe.

The 37 specially-made 10 minute films of The Complete Walk were originally screened along London's South Bank as part of the Shakespeare 400 celebrations last year. Now we will be showing them on an outdoor screen on the patio of York Theatre Royal.

Each film explores one of Shakespeare's plays and includes scenes shot in the locations Shakespeare imagined when he wrote them. Picture Cleopatra in front of the Pyramids, Shylock in Venice's former Jewish Ghetto, Hamlet on the rocks of Elsinore and much more. These scenes are combined with extracts from the BFI's Silent Shakespeare series and the Globe on Screen filmed stage productions. Featuring a host of the world's greatest actors, The Complete Walk is an accessible, interactive way to celebrate Shakespeare's life, work and legacy.
