From Lucy Munro:

THE GLOBE RESEARCH SEMINAR

"...murder and blood
Are the two pillars of a States-mans good"
John Mason, The Turk (1607-8)

The Globe Research Seminar is being re-launched as a forum for
postgraduate and postdoctoral scholars to study plays performed in Globe
Education's "Read Not Dead" season of staged readings.

Participants will gain a unique opportunity to workshop in depth the
practical and theoretical issues which arise from little-studied texts.
Discussion will be accompanied by a glass of wine, and all participants
will have the opportunity to attend the staged reading at the Globe
Education Centre Theatre in Bear Gardens.  The first session will take
place from 12-2pm on Sunday 30 November 2003 (prior to the staged
reading at 3pm), and the play under examination will be John Mason's
tragedy The Turk, a rattling story of ambition, illicit love, betrayal
and revenge, featuring sleeping potions, fake ghosts, aphrodisiacs and a
reluctant eunuch. To enable discussion, an e-text of the play will be
available prior to the seminar.
