Pop-up Globe — it’s back

After performing to an astonishing 450,000 people in just two years, Pop-up Globe — the world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of one of the greatest theatres in history, the second Globe — announces it’s back this summer with its most controversial season yet.

Located in the beautiful gardens at Ellerslie Racecourse, Pop-up Globe will throw open its doors on 16 November to present four of Shakespeare’s masterworks tied together with the common thread of the “abuse of power”. As always, there’ll be a twist!

Headlining this showstopper season is the most famous play in history, Hamlet, alongside controversial “battle of the sexes” comedies The Taming of the Shrew and Measure for Measure. The bloody and darkly comic tragedy Richard III completes the quartet.
