The Gabriel Sundukyan National Academic Theatre present King John in Armenian as part of the Globe’s innovative programme Globe To Globe.

Shakespeare has always had a strong influence in the Caucasus, and nowhere more powerfully than in Armenia. Poets, playwrights, actors and audiences have all lived and worked within his generous shade, and he has proven an enduring symbol of freedom in times of oppression. Many great actors and directors have emerged from Armenia to go on to great international success, and this is the first visit of their national theatre to the UK.

Globe To Globe sees every one of Shakespeare’s 37 plays performed in a different language by an international company. The result is a once in a life time, six week celebration of the incredible breadth of communities and languages that make up London’s vibrant cultural landscape.
