From Verona to Athens to Denmark to the Scottish Highlands - the varied locations for William Shakespeare's plays reads like a 17th Century travel guide of far-flung places (although don't expect to find Australia, it had only just been discovered by Europeans in the playwright's lifetime).


To commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Bard's death in 2016, Shakespeare's Globe assembled an all-star cast, including James Norton, David Harewood, Gemma Arterton and Dominic West, to make 37 short films - one for each play - and here's the twist: each lavish 10 minute vignette is made on location in the real setting of each plot. Watch them here... for a limited time only!
