Under the leadership of Emma Rice, The Globe had shed some of its reputation as a haven for tourist-friendly tradition, bedecked in doublets and ruff'd, to become a destination for invigorating theatre. The 2016 inaugural Wonder Season was a colourful, creative declaration that Shakespeare is anything but dull and dusty.
Alas, such freshness was deemed too much by the powers that be at The Globe, and it was announced that Rice's second season at The Globe will be her last. Summer of Love 2017 promises a lively helping of Shakespeare and new writing, celebrating love's position at the heart of human experience. 'It provides us with the best of times and the worst of times and reminds us that we are alive, connected and part of something greater than ourselves' says Emma Rice of this Summer of Love, her last at The Globe.
