Shakespeare Poetry Hour 2011

What is an audience? When do individuals become a group? How do (or should) audiences behave? This arrangement of episodes from plays by Shakespeare and others explores the ways in which audiences respond, interpret, interact, interrupt – and occasionally disrupt – plays. Dr Elisabeth Dutton directs actors from Shakespeare’s Globe in a creative piece that will make you rethink the relationship between actors and spectators. These extracts from Shakespeare’s plays will be brought to life by Globe actors in the perfect setting of the UnderGlobe exhibition space.
