Shakespeare’s Globe announces full casting for ‘Metamorphoses’

Shakespeare’s Globe has announced full casting of Metamorphoses, a new play inspired by Ovid’s collection of Greek Myths, which will run in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse from 30 September to 30 October 2021.

Metamorphoses has been written bespoke for the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse by the Globe’s first writers-in-residence in nearly four centuries: Sami Ibrahim, Laura Lomas and Sabrina Mahfouz, and will be co-directed by the Globe’s Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes and Holly Race Roughan.

The cast of Metamorphoses will comprise: Steffan DonnellyFiona HamptonCharlie Josephine; and Irfan Shamji.

Ovid’s stories explore the power of transformation, the resilience of humans and the wonder of life. They were a great inspiration to Shakespeare, and now, over 2,000 years later are reimagined for our world today.

Also, for the very first time, audiences will be able to buy £5 standing tickets to the main productions in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse with 48 standing tickets available per show.
