Shannon Murray, (UPEI)

Most people know that Shakespeare wrote some of his plays with the Globe Theatre in mind, but so what? How can theatrical space -- and this space in particular -- alter the experience of a play or shape its meaning? In this unit, we'll look at the structure of the first and the new Globe, experience the difference between the proscenium arch and a Renaissance public theatre, and discuss parallels to the contemporary university classroom
