Labelled slides of The Globe

You might consider the following when planning your display:

  • Diagram(s) of The Globe, perhaps with the different parts of the theatre labelled, e.g. the yard, gallery, etc.
  • 3D model of The Globe
  • What was it like watching a play at the theatre in Shakespeare’s time?
  • How popular was the theatre and Shakespeare’s plays in his own time?
  • Were there any disadvantages or difficulties in producing and performing a play in such a theatre? (For example, there was no lighting – at least, light sufficient to illuminate the whole stage – so plays had to be performed during the afternoon. What were the drawbacks of this?)
  • Is there anything else that’s important which I have left out?
