Théâtre de Verdure du Jardin Shakespeare


UK’s Tower Theatre Company is coming back in June for their 26th annual season at the Théâtre de Verdure in the Bois de Boulogne, this year performing Much Ado about Nothing in English with French subtitles. The play is a comedy where two couples are tricked by gossip and rumor into confessing or rejecting their love. Those of you who attended As you Like It in 2014 or Romeo and Juliet last year will remember how delightful the productions are, in lovely surroundings and with the actors so close.  PAN has purchased a limited number of tickets, group-rate, at 15€ each.

The setting

Hidden in the Bois de Boulogne, in the Pré Catelan garden, the Théâtre de Verdure du Jardin Shakespeare is one of the most beautiful open-air theatres in the world. The audience sits on a large lawn around which are planted the flowers, trees and plants which are mentioned in five of Shakespeare’s plays. Since 1992 the Tower Theatre Company has performed Shakespeare during the first week of June in this delightful setting.

Pratical details

There are no refreshments available at the theatre so please bring your own.
The Tower Theatre Company performs whatever the weather provided they have an audience (only 2 shows have been cancelled due to rain in the last 20 years) – so bring a raincoat in case of showers and/or a hat because there isn’t much shade when it is hot.
