    The career of England's greatest playwright is inextricably linked with the history of its capital. Drawing on Shakespeare's works and other contemporary sources, Globe paints a vivid picture of Elizabethan London. It tells how James Burbage carried the timbers of his Shoreditch theatre across the river to build the Globe among the brothels of Bankside, how it burned down during a performance of Henry VIII, and how it rose again 300 years later.
