20 Nov to 11 Dec




To celebrate their 30th Birthday, Black Swan is returning to the playwright and stage where it all began, inviting audiences to vote for which Shakespearean play they want to see performed at the end of their 2021 season.


This open-door endeavour invites you not only to help them lift the curtain but immerse yourself behind it for the full journey of a production.


The voting process is super simple: just head to the Vote For Shakespeare webpage, enter your details, and select the play you want to see performed from the dropdown menu. Need help deciding? Watch the video of director Matt Edgerton whilst you’re there to hear all 37 plays summarised in 3 minutes (well, almost).


PLUS: By voting you'll go in the draw to win a VIP experience for two at the Opening Night of the winning play Wednesday 24 November.*
