The world's bravest theatre company - the Belarus Free Theatre - return to the Globe this autumn to perform Shakespeare's great play about speaking the truth. In Belarus, Europe's last dictatorship, the company is forced to hold their rehearsals and free performances in secret locations, normally small private apartments or in the woods. Praised for being "energetic... extraordinary... charming" by The Guardian, the Belarus Free Theatre first performed King Lear in London during last year's splendid Globe to Globe event in the World Shakespeare Festival. Granted, the famous tale of a King falling into madness may be performed in Belarusian, but theatre fans should come in their droves for a second chance to see such a towering production.

Globe to Globe 2013: Venus & Adonis, King Lear, Indian Tempest, As You Like It. Special offer: buy top-price tickets to all four productions and get 50% off.

About Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

This replica of the Shakespeare's 16th century theatre, reconstructed just 200 yards from its original site, is the brainchild of American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. Built in wood and thatch, using techniques from 400 years ago, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre opened in 1996. More about Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
