A Collaboration Between TIDE and Before Shakespeare, 33 Finsbury Square, 3pm. £5
Join us just north of the City walls in Finsbury Square for an open performance workshop exploring the diverse audiences of Elizabethan playhouses and their surrounding neighbourhoods. We will ask: Who visited Elizabethan playhouses? What might it mean to put “non-English” characters on stage? What do playwrights’ engagement with the issues of immigration, identity, and belonging tell us about late sixteenth-century playing spaces?
