Research In Action

Our Research in Action workshops give you a chance to be part of our exploration into the indoor theatrical culture of 17th century London. The four 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 will test the dramatic and technical potential of our new indoor space. The workshops will focus on theatrical performance, music or candle-light. Expect discoveries – and expect to be asked for your feedback!  

Drama and dramaturgy 2

Sunday 21 September
3.00pm - 5.30pm 

Join us for the final workshop of this season, when Globe actor Philip Bird returns for another session exploring the staging capabilities of the indoor playhouse. Our focus will be the area behind the central doors known as the ‘discovery space’.

Using extracts from Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale (1611), John Ford’s Love’s Sacrifice (1633) and Nathaniel Richards’ Messalina (c. 1635), we will investigate the performance of sudden revelations, magical transformations and eye-watering degradations. This workshop encourages audience interaction, with audience members able to move around the space and watch from different vantage-points.
