Shakespeare's Globe is a faithful reconstruction of the open air playhouse designed in 1599, where Shakespeare worked and wrote most of his greatest plays. It is also home to new indoor Jacobean theatre, The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. The Globe's theatre season runs all year round - outside from April - October and inside from November - March.
