Nigerian theatre company Renegade Theatre join the Globe’s Globe To Globe season with a Yoruba language production of The Winter’s Tale.

The Renegade Theatre initiated the Theatre@Terra project in 2007, where plays were produced twice every Sunday in Lagos without interruption for three and a half years – a feat unparalleled in modern Nigeria. The company’s patron is the Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka.

Yoruba folk tales inform this magical new production where Leontes becomes Sango, the God of Thunder, and Hermione is Oya, the Warrior Spirit of the Wind.

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.
