‘Scholars have been asking such questions for decades. Although we may never have definitive answers, research at the Globe theatre is providing important new approaches and insights.’

Research in Action will return in Spring 2018.

Our Research in Action workshops give you the chance to be part of Globe Education’s exploration into the theatres of 16th and 17th century London.

The workshops mix theatre practice and scholarship in an engaging investigation of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse’s theatrical capacities. Using extracts from well-known and less-familiar plays, Globe actors and leading academics test the dramatic and technical potential of our indoor space.

Expect discoveries – and expect to be asked for your feedback!
