Upcoming Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen Productions
• "Much Ado About Nothing" - Tuesday, Oct. 23

• "Doctor Faustus" - Friday, Nov. 9


The famous Globe Theatre of London comes to Sedona on Friday, Oct. 12 in high definition when the Sedona International Film Festival hosts the big screen premiere of Shakespeare's "All's Well That Ends Well."

There will be two shows at 4 and 7 p.m. at the festival's Mary D. Fisher Theatre. This special production kicks off the full season of Globe on Screen that will be carried here in Sedona, presented by the film festival.

Shakespeare's Globe in partnership with Arts Alliance Media will release three of its theatre productions to cinemas in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and the UK: "All's Well That Ends Well," "Much Ado About Nothing," and "Doctor Faustus."

The three productions will be shown in their entirety on screens in hundreds of local cinemas. Offering a truly distinctive cinema experience and the very best seat in the house, this season is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the unique charm of the world famous Globe Theatre and these critically acclaimed performances. The first of these productions will be "All's Well That Ends Well," debuting on Oct. 12.

In the comedy "All's Well That Ends Well" - a story of love and magic - Shakespeare defies all expectations.

Helena loves the arrogant Bertram, and when she cures the King of France of his sickness, she claims Bertram as her reward. But her brand-new husband - flying from Helena to join the wars - attaches two obstructive conditions to their marriage; conditions he is sure will never be met.

"All's Well That Ends Well" grinds the romantic against the realistic at every turn and brilliantly reverses all the usual expectations of Shakespearean comedy. Some of Shakespeare's most inventive language gives life to not just his single-minded heroine and her churlish lover, but a fantastic cast of frauds, cynics, sentimentalists and buffoons.

Olivier Award-winning actress Janie Dee (Me & Orson Welles) is a delight as the Countess of Roussillon, directed by John Dove.

The orphaned heroine Helena (Ellie Piercey) will stop at nothing to win the proud young aristocrat Bertram (Sam Crane) who is forced to marry her but instantly abandons her. Sumptuous costumes, outstanding original music, and a fine ensemble of actors captured the spirit of Shakespeare's complex Chekhovian comedy.

The Globe on Screen celebrates the power and imagination, the excitement of classic literature. Be transported to the surroundings in which William Shakespeare intended his work to be experienced.

The Globe on Screen will present classic works in an imaginative, skillful and accessible style that honors Shakespeare and his fellow playwrights' language and intentions, in a reconstruction of the house that Shakespeare built, while projecting their work through a 21st-century lens.

This is the definitive Shakespeare experience. Get closer to the action than ever before, experience the magic of the world famous Globe that yearly draws thousands of theatre lovers from around the world.

"All's Well That Ends Well" will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on one day only: Friday, Oct. 12, at 4 and 7 p.m.

Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members. Tickets are available in advance at the Sedona International Film Festival office or by calling 282-1177.

Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.com.
