Event description

Description

As part of the Globe Theatre’s Read not Dead series which revives forgotten plays in scripted readings by Globe actors, Shoreditch Church is proud to present The Captain, in which Shakespearean actor Richard Burbage starred.

It’s peace time, and the soldiers of Venice are at a loose end. A young gentlewoman, Frank, finds herself attracted to Captain Jacomo, despite his misogynist nature, but the interventions of her brother’s friends prevent the course of true love from running smoothly. Meanwhile, Leila, a promiscuous widow, struggles to line up her next match.

13:00 Rarely Played Seminar led by The Globe experts introducing the play

16:00 Beaumont and Fletcher's ‘The Captain’: scripted reading (until approx 7pm)

Attend the seminar only, the play reading only or for a discounted ticket, both sessions. Choose your ticket type accordingly below
