About the event

1643. Ever since the first Globe Theatre burnt down thirty years ago, the second has been the most sumptuous theatre in Europe. But now it stands empty. Closed by order of Oliver Cromwell, the puritanical leader of the parliamentary forces fighting King Charles I in the bloody English Civil War.

For playwright William Davenant, favourite of the King, and once regarded as the heir to Shakespeare (rumoured even to be his son) this means a sudden end to his livelihood.

The only way Davenant can re-open the Globe and restore his fortunes is to offer to write a propaganda play for Cromwell. But the only way he can finance the project is to get the King to pay for it…

Can the desperate Davenant play both sides and save the Globe?
