All the World’s the Globe Stage!

It has been an amazing time here in England and one of the highlights was my experience last night (Tue, Oct 22).

I was invited by Dr. Farah Karim-Cooper to speak to her Shakespeare adaptation class about Kill Shakespeare, our interpretation of the characters, our next steps, etc.  It was a great chat and we discussed everything from feminism to Game of Thrones.

Thanks to all the students who came out to the class.

And then afterwards Dr. Karim-Cooper offered me the opportunity to hop on stage.  The stage wasn’t in use that evening so they turned on the lights and let me walk the boards.  It was a simply amazing experience and one that I will never regret!  I couldn’t hide my glee and felt better when Dr. Karim-Cooper mentioned that Dr. Stephen Greenblatt, one of the world’s top Shakespeare academics, had a similar reaction.

I am still on a high from this, 24 hours after the fact.

Here are some photos from the day:

For some reason they had a prop gun so I figured it would be appropriate to use it for a photo with The Globe's Sian Petty...
