Shakespeare’s London: Going to the Theatre

Not Just the Tudors


Shakespeare’s London: Going to the Theatre

In this third special episode of Not Just the Tudors celebrating the 400th anniversary of the publication of Shakespeare’s First Folio, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb investigates the nature of theatre-going in Elizabethan London with Dr. Eoin Price. How were theatres built? What was the experience for the audience? Who went to plays and how did they choose what plays to see, in which theatre? Did they even care if Shakespeare’s name was on the programme?

This episode was edited by Joseph Knight and produced by Rob Weinberg.
