Subject: Shakespeare’s Globe: September 2012 Events
Our immensely popular 2012 theatre season is drawing to a close with almost all remaining shows having sold out. Do check with our Box office for returns. It is the last chance to catch the witty sparring in The Taming of the Shrew and dark abuse of power in Richard III.
Twelfth Night opens 22 September: Mark Rylance reprises his widely celebrated performance of Olivia in this award-winning production. Actors Colin Hurley and Peter Hamilton Dyer share their experiences of the production in our Perspectives platform discussion on 4 October. Twelfth Night will transfer to The Apollo Theatre in the West End, opening 2 November 2012.
Globe on screen: Our cinema series will be screening these gems of the 2011 ‘The Word is God’ theatre season—Much Ado About Nothing, All’s Well That Ends Well, and Doctor Faustus—across the UK, Australia, and New Zealand from 26 September and USA from 11 October.
Our Education events programme, Merry Meetings continues to inform and inspire through pre and post show talks and platform discussions with actors.
200th performance of Read not Dead series: On 23 September, Globe Education celebrates the 200th Read Not Dead performance with a reading of Philip Massinger’s A New Way to Pay Old Debts. Since 1995, this hugely popular series has been staging readings of rarely performed plays by Shakespeare’s contemporaries.
Building the indoor Jacobean theatre: In October work will start on the new indoor Jacobean theatre so you will notice some changes to our site. The Globe Exhibition, Shop, and Swan will be open for business as usual but entrance will be from Bankside. The foyer will be closed.
Half Term in the Exhibition: This October half-term the Exhibition & Tour will be creating a spooky Halloween inspired pumpkin patch—help out by drawing your own design. Throughout the day, there will be family friendly live demonstrations, including sword fighting and live dressing taking place; all included in the price of your ticket. Suitable for all the family.
To celebrate Halloween and the changing of the seasons we are giving away a coveted life-like, replica skull (worth £50.00) for you to play your very own Hamlet with during those “Yorick moments”.
