A Celebration of Shakespeare and
the Globe Theatre.

Seeing every Shakespeare production in the Globe Theatre since it began in 1996, artist, cartoonist and illustrator Chris Duggan has recorded them in his many sketchbooks, and about 200 of his lively sketches are included here.

Pictures in pencil, crayon, ink, acrylic, gouache and watercolour of musicians and actors in character who bring alive the Globe’s stage, alongside quotes from the plays and some comments on the peculiarities of this unique venue.
