Shakespeare's Globe will visit Asuncion on November 20 as part of their "Globe to Globe World" Tour.

The British Embassy Asuncion is very pleased to announce the visit of Shakespeare’s Globe on November 20, to present the play “Hamlet”.

The Globe Theatre is on a world tour that will last two years and serves to mark the 450th anniversary of the birth of William Shakespeare.

The production is a young, fresh version of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy of deferred revenge that teases out its latent streak of gallows humour and celebrates the exuberance and invention of its language. Just twelve actors will perform over two dozen parts on a stripped-down wooden stage in a comparatively brisk two hours and forty minutes.

Tickets are for sale on RED UTS.
