Thames Shakespeare Collection, The

Four of William Shakespeare's ageless tales of drama and passion come together in this stellar collection featuring award-winning actors and acclaimed directors. From royal family struggles and star-crossed lovers, to a shipwreck romance and witches' prophecies, the productions in this collection represent the finest in Shakespearean stage adaptation.


Witchcraft, manipulation, and murder mark Macbeth's ascension to power and his subsequent downfall. This classic production features the unsurpassed talent of Ian McKellen, Oscar® winner Judi Dench, and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

King Lear

When King Lear renounces his throne to divide his kingdom among his daughters, treachery, madness, and murder follow. This compelling production stars Patrick Magee (A Clockwork Orange) and other mainstays of stage and television.

Romeo & Juliet

This moving interpretation of Shakespeare's ageless tale of family feuds, star-crossed lovers and tragic, untimely death features a first-rate cast, authentic sets and colorful costumes that will envelope you in the world's most famous love story.

Twelfth Night

Showcasing the directorial talents of Kenneth Branagh, this popular and enduring comedy revolves around unrequited love and mistaken identity. An insightful and witty performance by the Renaissance Theatre Company provides a humorous commentary about whom and how we love.
