Four of William Shakespeare’s greatest plays will be performed in repertory over the 10-week summer season: Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet and Richard III.

Traditional in conception, yet fresh and fun in delivery, Romeo and Juliet and Richard III will be directed by the West End’s renowned Lindsay Posner, while York Theatre Royal’s Olivier Award-winning Artistic Director Damian Cruden and Associate Director Juliet Forster will be putting their stamp on Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

In Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre an experience every bit as exciting, intimate and immersive will be offered to today's audiences in a dramatic playhouse setting beside the iconic 13th century Clifford’s Tower in the heart of the historic city of York.
