Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

The new Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare’s Globe is an archetypal Jacobean indoor theatre, and is based on designs from two 17th Century drawings attributed to John Webb. Extensive research has informed the construction methods and detailing in green oak. It is exclusively lit by candlelight, further enhancing the intimacy of performances. The Globe’s Foyer has also been extensively refurbished transforming the public spaces that serve both the Globe and the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse
