Shakespeare like it’s 1614
A full-scale temporary working replica of one of the greatest theatres in history, the second Globe, has just pop-up in Melbourne.
From 21 September - 12 November 2017, Pop-up Globe is the home of the most spectacular season of Shakespeare that Melbourne will ever seen.
As You Like It
An all-singing-and-dancing cast of fifteen bring you Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy, As You Like It. Set in 1642, and with gorgeous costumes to match, this zany production by our all- male company - complete with human sheep, bone-crunching wrestling, live music and lyrical poetry - will have you crying with laughter.
Much Ado About Nothing
See the legendary Beatrice and Benedick as you’ve never seen them before in Shakespeare’s original ‘rom-com’, Much Ado About Nothing. You’ll laugh and cry from start to finish as they navigate their way to love in this hilarious production which turns Pop-up Globe into an uproarious house party.
Witness Shakespeare’s ultimate psychological thriller in Pop-up Globe’s production of Othello. Take a journey into the diseased mind of the noble Moor as he’s consumed by ‘the green- eyed monster’ jealousy. The twists and turns in this powerful and dark production will have you on the edge of your seat.
Shakespeare’s tribute to one of history’s greatest leaders comes alive like an action movie. Be part of the English army as the heroic King Henry takes on the French army at Agincourt in the face of impossible odds. No knowledge of history is necessary to enjoy this immersive theatrical experience complete with spectacular and blood-thirsty battle sequences, performed by sixteen men in full armour wielding broadswords, longbows, garottes, cross- bows, bagpipes and a frying pan.
