Performed by the Pop-up Globe’s Nottingham’s Company
“I have seen corruption boil and bubble / Till it o’er-run the stew...”
Auckland’s smash-hit sensation Pop-up Globe launches their first ever Winter Festival in their unique Shakespearean Playhouse.
Join our all-singing, all-dancing cast as we take a wild romp through the seedy streets of 17th century Vienna, meeting larger-than-life characters who will charm you even as they pick your pocket. In a city of brothels, louche lads-about-town and illegitimate children, the acting city leader and a young nun meet in private. She wants to save her brother’s life. He is happy to help – but at what price?
From the dubious delights of Mistress Overdone’s house of ill-repute to the musical inmates of the city jail, this production of Shakespeare’s masterpiece will take you on an unexpected and joyful journey.
Originally produced as part of the Pop-up Globe Summer Festival 2018/19, directed by Miles Gregory
