We are thrilled to inform about the new date for the Gdansk Shakespeare Festival in 2020, which could not happen in Summer due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but is planned to take place from 20th to 28th November 2020.
The organisers – Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre and Theatrum Gedanense Foundation are closely monitoring the situation and hope, that with all respect to sanitary restrictions the organisation of the event will be possible in the planned timetable.
The mainstage presentations are compised on theatre productions from Lithuania, Italy, Japan and Poland. There is also a surprise planned – the first Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre own production of the “Tempest”, directed by Szymon Kaczmarek, which will open the Festival.
Moreover a number of ShakespeareOFF strand artistic events will be presented.
The Gdansk Shakespeare Festival has been organised annually since 1997 and has been a laureate of European EFFE Award for the best EU Festivals 2017/2018.
We do believe we should have the opportunity to greet our Festival Audience in the Gdansk Shakespeare Festival this year. See you in the theatre!
