Theatre Group trip to Globe Theatre

Merchant of Venice

On 13 October we had a most enjoyable trip to the Globe Theatre to see a marvellous  “traditional” performance of The 
Merchant of Venice. It was very well acted but unfortunately The Judge was very hard to hear and on occasions so was Portia.

Lots of school children were there, some of whom stood for the whole performance and were well behaved.

The only downside to the afternoon was the lunch in the cafe at the Globe which was awful and I have written to the Globe to advise them of this.  Other people did better at the Pitzza Hut and the pub nearby.

The river Thames was abit grey but so busy and it was nice spending a little while watching the traffic on the Thames go by.
