In 2012, Phyllida Lloyd’s all-female production of Julius Caesar placed the play in a women’s prison. It transferred to St. Ann’s Warehouse, Brooklyn, stunned audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and demanded a new answer to the question ‘who owns Shakespeare?’ In 2014, Phyllida reunited with actor Harriet Walter in both London and New York for Henry IV, the second instalment in this trilogy of works from these major artists.

Following its London premiere in Autumn 2016, in January 2017 the transatlantic project concludes with The Tempest.
