The Globe Theatre in Neuss is kind of like this metal structure in the middle of nowhere – actually it’s on the edge of a racecourse. We flew in on the Sunday and made it in time to watch As You Like It in the evening.
Groombridge Place is beautiful! Our stage is in the garden of this stately home where Jane Austen’s Pride And Prejudice was filmed. People can sit where they like with tables and chairs and they can even bring their own picnics.
Schloss Hof in Austria is located not too far outside Vienna and we are performing here as part of a theatre festival called Art Carnuntum.
Hamlet is back at the Globe! Josh talks about the pressure of performing at this theatre, but how the Globe lends itself perfectly to this play, particularly for Hamlet's soliliques.
