Shakespeare's Globe

  • Education/Lively_Action2


Every day, hundreds of students come to the Globe to take part in our Lively Action workshops, lectures and theatre tours. Lively Action takes its name from John Marston’s preface to The Malcontent in which he apologises "that Scenes invented, merely to be spoken, should be enforcively published to be read" and asks that the play "be pardoned, for the pleasure it once afforded you, when it was presented with the soul of lively action".

This encapsulates the spirit at the core of all our work – that plays should be explored practically rather than read passively as texts.
