With the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta, the exploits of King John has once again been a focus of attention. For a 16th century take on the much maligned King, The Shakespeares Globe is undertaking a rare production of one the bard’s lesser known history plays.

King John is the story of a King that will stop at nothing to maintain his power even blinding his young nephew, Prince Arthur.  However his enemies are closing in and the King  must make alliances to stay in control.
