I like the spirit of this great London which I feel around me. Who but a coward would pass his whole life in hamlets; and for ever abandon his faculties to the eating rust of obscurity?
— Charlotte Brontë
We invite you to join us for the Summer 2022 edition of London on Stage. We’re industriously working on one-of-a-kind, memorable events calculated to delight, astonish, and enlighten. We can’t wait to share them with you and hope to see you in July!
While we do not have all the details in place we could not miss the oportunity to snag tickets for a fantastic play called Jerusalem by playwright Jez Butterworth, starring Sir Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies [for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor], Dunkirk, Wolf Hall, The Trial of the Chicago 7—and LOTS of superb starring roles on stage [he was the first Artistic Director of the Globe Theatre]).
This is one of the best examples of contemporary British drama and says important things about contemporary British culture (despite its name, it's set in the Midlands of England). Tickets are already sold out but we got you covered!

From Tim Slover:
We reserved 24 tickets for a fantastic play called Jerusalem by playwright Jez Butterworth, starring Sir Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies [for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor], Dunkirk, Wolf Hall, The Trial of the Chicago 7—and LOTS of superb starring roles on stage [he was the first Artistic Director of the Globe Theatre]).
I saw this play in London when it was first produced with Rylance in 2009; Jane saw it in NY. It is one of the best examples of contemporary British drama I know and says important things about contemporary British culture (despite its name, it's set in the Midlands of England). Plus, it’s a lot of fun. Just watching Rylance eat a raw egg is worth the price of admission. I guarantee this will be a can’t-miss performance along the line of the Cumberbatch Hamlet and the McKellan King Lear.
Know Before You Go:
Filled with one-of-a-kind visits and many sites barred to the general public, this trip will leave you happily exhausted. It includes long days exploring London and Oxford as a group and late nights of theatre performances, and the pace is brisk. We average 7 miles of walking and 200 stairs per day. Travel is by public transportation (included in the price of the trip), and participants should be able to board Tube trains and buses independently. The group comes first, so participants who wish to travel by taxi (not recommended) must make their own independent arrangements and expect to pay about $600 extra.
London on Stage is considered Level Two out of three physical ability levels Go Learn journeys can reach. For more information regarding physical ability levels click
Go Learn Activity Levels
Traveling in a group is enriching and fun. It also requires consideration for everyone’s well-being and for reaching our daily goals in activities set by the itinerary. Before we head on our journey we like to ask our participants to consider the activity level each journey has and if it is something they feel able to do. The group’s interest in accomplishing our itinerary is the priority for trip leaders and we understand and respect this promise to all. Due to differences in country-specific laws and regulations, many sites visited are not handicap accessible. Go Learn staff can talk to participants in person for assessment and to answer questions.
At this level of a tour, trip participants will actively participate in up to three hours of activities. We may walk and stand for large portions of the lectures or excursions. Extensive breaks and adequate time to relax makes this our lowest activity level. Like all Go Learn journeys, active listening and participation is fundamental to learning and exploration.
Level 2 requires a good amount of stamina in walking and standing. In the course of a day one can expect to reach and exceed 5 miles of walking, multiple stairs, and prolonged periods of standing. We will take breaks and a certain standard of comfort will be maintained. The journey might have a hotel in one location, avoiding extensive travel, but public transportation and exploring on foot may be the main form of transportation. Happy exhaustion is part of this activity level.
Extensive excursions and challenging terrain will be encountered at this level. A day with a number of hours on foot is the norm. At this activity level, we may embark on hikes, physically strenuous site visits, and distances reaching and exceeding 10 miles per day. Go Learn will always incorporate breaks, sometimes a day off, but this level is as strenuous as it is fun.
Tour Highlights Include:
6-7 brilliant, thought-provoking plays at the epicenter of great performances: the Royal National, West End, and off-West End theatres.
We've reserved tickets to Jerusalem by playwright Jez Butterworth and To Kill A Mockingbird, Aaron Sorkin's new play based on Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, directed by Bartlett Sher.
