Read Not Dead on The Road

Globe Education’s celebrated staged reading series has hit the road touring venues (and fields) nationwide including Glastonbury, Wilderness and Latitude festivals and to the Halls of the Inner Temple and Gray’s Inn, London.       


Love's Victory

By Lady Mary Wroth 
Sunday 8 June

This summer Read Not Dead On The Road visits Penshurst Place, home of the Sidney family since 1552, for an exclusive premiere performance of Love’s Victory by Lady Mary Wroth, the niece of the famous poet, courtier and soldier, Sir Philip Sidney.

Only one complete manuscript of Love’s Victory survives. Known as the Penshurst Manuscript, it has remained in the ownership of the Sidney family since it was written by Lady Mary Wroth in circa 1620. A facsimile copy edited by Professor Michael Brennan, has been published as  The 1st Viscount De L’Isle VC KG Roxburghe Club Edition.

Wilderness Festival

Shakespeare’s Globe brings a shining cast to Oxfordshire’s fields for Wilderness Festival.

Shakespeare’s Globe goes On The Road at Wilderness Festival this year at Cornbury Park. 

Since 1995, Globe Education’s Read Not Dead series has staged “performances with scripts” of plays written between 1576 and 1642 by Shakespeare’s contemporaries, offering an adventure for actors and audiences alike.

Festival-goers will be able to watch the open rehearsal during the day on Friday and Saturday.

More details coming soon.
