It would also look good framed!

I love the Shakespeare’s Globe theatre and remember going there several times during its first season after opening. During a memorable production of Henry V, the weather joined in and there was real thunder and lightning during the battle scenes!

Shakespeare’s Globe is a modern reproduction of a theatre of Shakespeare’s day – a unique venue partially open to the elements – giving theatre-goers the chance to experience Shakespeare’s plays as they would have been originally performed, in daylight and with an potentially unruly crowd of “groundlings” standing around the stage. The repertoire is usually pretty varied but, of course, does include a lot of Shakespeare!

Let’s hope we can all get back to enjoying theatre again soon!
