Working In The Theatre: The Globe

“Human evolution is something that is continuous, and Shakespeare was very tapped into that.” – Dr. Farrah Karim-Cooper, Head of Higher Education and Research at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Founded by the pioneering American actor and director Sam Wanamaker, Shakespeare’s Globe is a unique international resource dedicated to the exploration of Shakespeare’s work and the playhouse for which he wrote. We visit the playhouse to learn about Shakespeare and the London in which he lived, the original Globe theatres, and the remarkable story of this icon rebuilt for the 21st century.

Find out more about the history of The Globe, its architecture, today’s audience, and so much more.
