Playing Indoors


What have we discovered about performance practice in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse since the opening of the intimate candlelit theatre at Shakespeare's Globe? Playing Indoors reveals the result of a two-year study into the performance of Elizabethan and Jacobean drama in this unique theatre, drawing together insights into early modern stage practice and the observations of today's actors and spectators.

A history of the experience of the artists and audience members who exploered the space first, the book is also a study of the significance of re-imagined theatres like the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse and the Globe. Playing Indoors is a valuable contribution to the emerging field of early modern practice-as-research
