Last week saw my first visit to Shakespeare’s Globe in London. The lads and ladies of which, are so hugely talented it’s enviable even to non-thespians. For those that have never been or heard of it, The Globe is an open air theatre on the banks of the River Thames, dedicated entirely to the works of William Shakespeare. This incredible theatre – the likes of which I have not encountered before – has the most amazing atmosphere which hits you as soon as you enter. It is as if you are actually stepping back in time. Although there is a stage (a hugely impressive one at that), the space around it that would normally be stall seating, is standing room only. This area is as much part of the play as the stage, which means the audience are almost living the scenes. It certainly ramps up the entertainment value, as the reactions of the general public obviously vary greatly!
