During our school trip to London, on our second day more specifically, we went to the Shakespeare Globe Theater, rebuilt after several destructions (fire, demolition) in 1996. It looks like a wooden white circle with an alike straw roof.
We went to see the piece A Midsummer night's dream written by Shakespeare between 1594 and 1595. It was an adaptation from the original piece, which was a comedy, and changed in many ways. Indeed, the actors were part of a Bollywood crew and they added several singing parts that were both funny and well-sung. They also changed the original characters' sex : for example, the main character in the piece was a girl named Helena and in the theater she was played by a boy whose name had been changed in Helenus. All these details gathered made the whole piece really funny and interesting even though it was a bit long standing for three hours in the crowd.
