Pop-up Globe

Shakespeare may be for all time, but he was also of a specific age. Pop-up Globe seeks to navigate the fascinating gulf between the twenty-first century and when the plays were first written and performed 400 years ago with a series of short talks before selected matinees of four of our shows in the Winter Festival. Pop-up Globe’s head of research David Lawrence will attempt to illuminate the historical context behind the original performance of Twelfth Night. Find out what the immediate political and social concerns of the age were, and what contemporary events Shakespeare may have been thinking about or responding to when he wrote the play. An ideal way to enhance your enjoyment of that afternoon’s performance.
