Book Being Shakespeare Tickets at the Trafalgar Studios, London

About Being Shakespeare

“We've had some fine one-man shows about Shakespeare from John Gielgud, Ian McKellen and Michael Pennington. But Simon Callow's is among the very best.”
“A memorably multidimensional picture of Shakespeare, steeped in scholarship and love.”

“Callow revels in Falstaff and Bottom”
“It’s a fine introduction for a novice, as well as a treat for those who know the plays.”


Star of stage and screen, SIMON CALLOW brings to life Shakespeare's unforgettable characters and the real man behind the legend in this triumphant one-man show, BEING SHAKESPEARE.

Callow joins forces with Jonathan Bate (Shakespeare biographer and editor of the RSC's Shakespeare: The Complete Works) and director Tom Cairns (Old Vic's All About My Mother, National Theatre's Aristocrats) to fill the stage in an extraordinary theatrical event.

Following a hugely successful national tour, Callow's magnificent performance sets the West End alight for a strictly limited summer season.
