For the first time ever, Pop-up Globe presents ‘Canon Fodder’, a series of rehearsed play-readings designed to enhance your experience of our 2019 summer season. This is your chance to encounter plays from the Renaissance canon, never performed in New Zealand before, that either influenced Shakespeare’s writing or were themselves influenced by it. A cast of professional actors will bring these plays to life, book in hand, each for one night only. Join us for an enriching and enlivening evening at Pop-up Globe. Tickets are only $5 – book now to avoid disappointment.
The perfect companion piece to The Taming of the Shrew, this hilarious 1612 sequel to Shakespeare’s play inverts the plot of the original, with the widowed Petruchio the recipient of marital abuse at the hands of his new wife, Maria, as she attempts to tame him into the perfect husband.
