Five Photos a Day – Glancing at Europe – Day 10 Part 2 – The Globe Theatre

Part of the borderline insane schedule we’d set ourselves was seeing Taming of the Shrew at Shakespeare’s Globe. It was a great highlight, helping us to understand exactly why Shakespeare’s audience was enthralled and sucked into the drama.

1. Southwark Bridge. They like to play with colour under the Southwalk Bridge, a nice sight when one walks towards the Globe.

2 – 5. The Globe. It’s a fascinating place to see Shakespeare performed, from the groundlings to the theatre in the round. Plus, there was the added bonus of a bit of pre theatre music, including a very cute viol player.
