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.

Basically, a full-scale replica of the second Globe Theatre has been erected in Sydney and kicks-off tomorrow night at Moore Park to showcase a number of Shakespeare classics including A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Merchant of VeniceMacbeth and laugh-out-loud slapstick The Comedy of Errors.

Previously, it's 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. Pretty sure things will be bigger and better this time around too (because we're Sydney guys).

You can grab your tickets here, it’s an event you don’t want to miss.
