As part of the groundbreaking Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank scheme, more than 14,000 free tickets for a full-scale, professional production of Macbeth over two weeks in March will be made available to secondary students across the city.
The free production of Macbeth - which is in addition to the production of Macbeth in the Globe's 2010 theatre season - is directed by Bill Buckhurst, who appeared in the 2007 and 2008 Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank productions of Much Ado About Nothing, as well as directing last year's Playing Shakespeare production of Romeo and Juliet.
Two of the performances will also be open to the public, with around 2,500 tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Up to 4 tickets per booking are available in person from the box office or by calling 020 7401 9919.
These public performances include the Globe's first ever captioned performance, for audience members who are deaf or hard of hearing.
