Two perspectives on the many and varied theatrical venues including the Blackfriars Playhouse. Julian Bowsher will guide us through the theatrical venues of Shakespeare's London, setting out the rich dramatic history of this period against recent fascinating archaeological evidence. This talk explores the geographical distribution of London's Tudor theatres and gives an insight into the places where you can still glimpse Shakespeare's London today. Nicholas Fogg takes us into Shakespeare's life at one of its most exciting points: the opening of his indoor playhouse, The Blackfriars. By examining the impact of this new space on his life, this talk offers the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of Shakespeare by examining the prevailing controversies of his age.
