From 1997 Shakespeare's Globe flourished once more on London's
South Bank after an absence of 400 years. The playhouse is now a
major attraction for theatregoers, scholars, tourists, teachers and
students of all ages who come to experience Shakespeare's plays and
those of his contemporaries performed in their original conditions.
The team of artists and education specialists who made this happen
come together here to reflect on their 10-year experiment.
Principal actors, designers, musicians and Globe Education staff
engage with international scholars in a lively debate about the
impact of this extraordinary building. Featuring an in-depth
interview with former Artistic Director Mark Rylance and a
contribution from Patrick Spottiswoode, Founder and Director of
Globe Education, the book highlights the complex relationship
between designer, composer, actor and audience which gives energy
to this thriving Shakespearean centre.
