“If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction.”
" [...] I saw Shakespeare as it was meant to be performed [...] bawdy, intimate, mischievous, immediate and personal." - Stuff.co.nz Review
The Pop-up Globe Theatre Company present Shakespeare’s finest comedy, Twelfth Night, at Pop-up Globe Auckland.
A young girl and her identical twin brother are shipwrecked on a strange shore. Separated, and believing the other dead, they are transformed by their adventures in a land where intoxicating love is in the very air. Set in 1616, the year of Shakespeare’s death, and performed by an authentic all-male cast in bespoke Jacobean costume, Twelfth Night is a masterclass in laugh-out-loud comedy.
Performed by a cast of professional actors brought together into a new, specially-formed ensemble repertory company and working with world experts to bring you the authentic shock of the old: the effect of Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space for which they were written.
"Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines"
Pop-up Globe is an open air amphitheatre and in the Groundlings under the sun it can get quite hot. We recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, a water bottle and even a handheld fan. Umbrellas are not permitted inside the yard so in case of rain please bring a raincoat!
Pop-up Globe Auckland is a full-scale working temporary replica of the second Globe Theatre originally built by Shakespeare and his company in 1614, the result of groundbreaking international academic research. With a steel frame ‘skinned’ in plywood the Pop-up Globe fuses cutting-edge scaffold technology with 400-year-old designs and superb contemporary performances to create an immersive 360 degree experience unlike any other.
