The Globe Theatre
Shakespeare Globe Trust was founded in 1970 by Sam Wanamaker and is dedicated to the experience and international understanding of Shakespeare in performance. The Globe Trust wanted to celebrate the playwright's work and decided to construct a new theatre in London in his name. In 1993, the construction of the Globe Theatre began and it was completed by 1997. Today, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre is being developed for the enjoyment and exploration of Shakespeare and his contemporaries in performance. It is made up of three sections: The Globe Theatre where plays are performed, Globe Education which helps students understand Shakespeare's scripts in relation to the stage for which they were written, and Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition which was created to inform the public about Shakespeare and his contemporaries who worked in theatre. Over the last few years, Shakespeare's Globe has been visited by around 750,000 people per year. It is a great project, but more money is needed to complete the programme.
