Isabella played by Sophie Thompson
Measure For Measure (2004)
Written by: William Shakespeare
Sophie Thompson played Isabella in her first season at Shakespeare's Globe, in the 2004 production of Measure For Measure.
This is Sophie's final blog post. This week she discusses the experience of taking the play to Hampton Court Palace, and how performing in an entirely different space has helped inform playing at the Globe.
In her penultimate blog post Sophie discusses the first preview performance, the dynamic between stage and audience and coping with pigeons.
In her fifth blog post Sophie discusses the technical rehearsals: moving on the stage, performing to tour groups and getting used to her costume. She also looks forward to the first performances.
