Globe Theatre

Why is the Globe Theatre so Famous?

The Globe Theatre is a faithful reconstruction of the open-air playhouse designed in 1599, where Shakespeare worked, and for which he wrote many of his greatest plays. The theatre season runs from May to September with productions of the work of Shakespeare, his contemporaries, and modern authors.

Each year the Globe Theatre Company rediscovers the dynamic relationship between the audience and the actor in this unique building. The Globe also welcomes international theatre companies to share the impact Shakespeare's plays have had worldwide. Today, audiences of this 'wooden O' sit in a gallery or stand informally as a grounding in the yard, just as they would have done 400 years ago.

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition provides an exciting, engaging and informed introduction to the theatre of Shakespeare's time and the London, in which he lived and worked. It is the world's only permanent exhibition dedicated to the conditions under which Shakespeare's plays were first written, performed, and published. During his lifetime, Shakespeare wrote and directed the greatest body of original dramatic work ever produced.

Globe Theatre - A faithful Reproduction

His extraordinary vision allowed him to explore the intricacy of the "human condition" and with a unique mastery of the written word to share that vision with his audience. Often referred to as simply 'The Bard', Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest playwright in the history of the stage - his words have enriched our lives and forever changed our understanding of the human psyche. As a testament to his remarkable brilliance, his writings have been translated into every major language and continue to be performed hundreds of years after his death.

In the vast Under Globe beneath the theatre, every aspect of Shakespeare's work is brought imaginatively to life using a combination of modern technology and traditional crafts. Against the historical background of Elizabethan Bankside - London's playground of pleasure in Shakespeare's day - the roles of actor, musician and audience are explored.

Bringing the story up-to-date, the Exhibition also tells the story of Sam Wanamaker's struggle to recreate an authentic Globe for the 20th century and beyond, and gives all visitors the chance to take a fascinating guided tour of today's working theatre. It takes One-and-a-half-hours will to see exhibition at The Globe Theatre.

Close to the Globe theatre there are lots of great restaurants to choose from, with fabulous views over the Thames and the London skyline. The Tate Modern is very close, free of charge and well worth visiting.
