Sun 19 May
York International Shakespeare Festival
Thirty-seven plays enter, one play leaves.
See the festival out with a bang as York actors champion their favourites for the title of Shakespeare’s Best Play. Will Love’s Labour’s lose? Can Coriolanus with the hearts of the common curs? Will Hamlet’s rivals pop in between the election and his hopes?
Only you, the audience, can decide.
Tickets available on the door 30 minutes before the performance.
Sir Thomas Herbert House, 14 Pavement, York, YO1 9UP
The Dogrose is a new pop-up space for this year’s festival. Nestled in the attic above the York Gin shop, the Dogrose showcases emerging and alternative takes on Shakespeare from York and further afield. Hidden in the rafters of Thomas Herbert House, the Dogrose will play host to alchemists, fairies and dying kings, with events that mix music, comedy and performance to surprise and entertain you.
