What does it mean to think of drama as a form of ‘playing’, as opposed to the depiction of a self-contained fictional world? Dr Stephen Purcell and Dr Clare Wright join us to think about early modern concepts of ‘character’ in the works of Shakespeare’s contemporaries and predecessors.
Our research workshops give you a chance to be part of the Globe’s exploration of early modern and contemporary performance culture.
Using extracts from well-known and less-familiar plays, Globe actors and leading academics uncover and question the practices of the Shakespearean stage. Expect discoveries – and expect to be asked for your feedback.
