Talking about the series so far, Rob Myles has said: “That escalated quickly! What started as a tweet before lockdown began has now seen thirty performances streamed over the last six months, with just ten remaining. We have been amazed by the talent, both on stage and backstage, throughout the series so far and we can’t wait to share the final ten performances with our ever-growing audience.In the final ten works, Shakespeare is in the late stage of his career: a new King is on the throne and Shakespeare himself has endured the loss of his son. Having mastered his powers, he begins to wrestle with some of life’s most difficult themes. Through this phase, he becomes boldly experimental, ferociously inventive, and discovers the healing power of time. It has been an honour to explore Shakespeare’s evolution as a dramatist and share high quality, global Shakespeare that is for everyone, by everyone.”
