This special workshop organised by Shakespeare's Globe in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse puts the plays of Christopher Marlowe back into the middle of the bustling theatre scene he knew so well. Presented in association with the Marlowe Society of America.

What do we learn about Marlowe’s innovative work when we see it in the context of his peers? Robert Greene’s Selimus meets Tamburlaine the Great, and the anonymous The Wars of Cyrus casts new light on Dido, Queen of Carthage.

Join Professor Lucy Munro (King’s College London) in a celebration of the other colossus of the early modern stage!

Part of our ongoing Research in Action series which gives audiences a chance to be part of the Globe’s world-leading exploration of early modern and contemporary performance culture and collaborate with academics, educators and artists.

Expect discoveries – and expect to be asked for your input!
