Read For The Globe

Like many theatres, Shakespeare's Globe is struggling for real and substantial funding. Hundreds of us from around the world are raising donations and awareness by reading a selection of our favourite Shakespeare plays over 48 hours on the May bank holiday weekend, 23-25 May 2020. We invite you to join us to listen - and donate to support a wonderful theatre - at our livestream here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoP9oZUzCT9UA4tIhIm6NgA/videos


The Globe, as an unsubsidised space that relies mostly on audiences for its income, is in dire straits due to the financial pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Read For The Globe started as a group of friends who met on the Shakespeare’s Globe MA course, Shakespeare Studies - we love the theatre, it’s such an important space for artists and scholars to experiment with new ideas about theatre in Shakespeare’s time and how it connects to theatre now.
