Deep Night, Dark Night
Shakespeare's Globe Summer 2020 Season
About Deep Night, Dark Night
Two sets of eerie evenings will combine the greatest ghost stories from the past, chilling tales from the present (including a new story by Jeanette Winterson), and unnerving real-life accounts of our haunted London.
Amid political and personal chaos, when all seems upsidedown, horror and terror have always inspired writers to look into the darkness and disturbance of a parallel world to help make sense of our own. And no writer more so than Shakespeare. So as Halloween descends and with him as our guide, we yet again turn to our storytellers to help us make sense of it all.
On ’Deep Nights’ we will be performing the first set of tales, and on ‘Dark Nights’ we stage the second set, so make sure you join us for both. Jeanette Winterson’s new story will be performed on Deep Nights (30 October – 2 November).
