Have you ever wanted to travel back in time and take in the sounds of a Shakespeare play in the original Globe Theatre? That’s a really specific thing to want to do, but now you’re going to get your chance to do just that.

Later this year, a full-scale replica of the second Globe Theatre will be erected in Sydney and while the details and pretty slim, you can expect a LOT more details come mid-June. Of course we'll be here to guide you through the whole thing (it's what we do).

Last time it popped up in Melbourne, and over a period of six weeks the three-storey, 900 person theatre put on Shakespeare classics such as Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It, Othello and Henry V—and if you went along, you would have caught epic battles, laugh-out-loud comedy, special effects, elaborate costumes, spectacular dances, and sword fights in full suits of armour. We can only hope it'll be a similar story this time 'round.

Like we said, details (a this stage) are pretty slim, but when the time comes, you can grab your tickets here, it’s an event you don’t want to miss.
