Award-winning pop-up Shakespearean theatre comes Blenheim Palace for summer 2019!

More than 400 years ago, the first audiences for Shakespeare’s plays enjoyed an experience that was as intimate as it was exciting, crowded in close to the actors and the action, in a small theatre in the bustling city of London. In Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre an experience every bit as exciting, intimate and immersive will be offered to today’s audience in a dramatic playhouse setting in the glorious ground of ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace’ at Blenheim Palace.

Inspired by the famous London Rose Playhouse built in 1587 (12 years prior to The Globe), the theatre combines state-of-the-art scaffolding technology, corrugated iron and timber with the historic 13-sided design of a 16th century Shakespearean theatre. It will house an audience of 900, with 560 seated on three tiered balconies around an open-roofed courtyard, and standing room for 340 ‘groundlings’.

Outside the theatre, visitors can experience a vibrant, free-to-enter Shakespearean village, offering the finest Oxfordshire based food and drinks housed in oak-framed, reed-thatched buildings, an array of ‘wagon’ entertainment, minstrels and a stunning Elizabethan garden with ornate box-edged beds of cottage flowers, roses and herbs.

Four of William Shakespeare’s most popular plays will be performed by two companies of actors in repertory over the summer season, from Monday 8th July until Saturday 7th September 2019:

  • Romeo and Juliet
  • Macbeth
  • A Midsummer Night's Dream
  • Richard III

Traditional in conception, yet fresh and fun in delivery, these enduring favourites will be directed by some of the UK’s leading theatre directors, led by Damian Cruden, Artistic Director of York Theatre Royal.

The unique environment of Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre creates an extraordinary connection between actors and audience.  While an interactive experience awaits those closest to the stage in the courtyard, no seat will be more than 15m from the action, providing plenty of breath-taking, spine-tingling, heart-stopping moments!

With gruesome murders, grand poetry, otherworldly creatures and romantic confusion, audiences will experience the comic heights and tragic depths of Shakespearean theatre in a memorable setting.
