THIS EVENT HAS TAKEN PLACE
Jon Greenfield is an architect who has developed an interest in the history of Elizabethan theatre through his work on the construction of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and on the preservation of what remains of the Rose Theatre. Since the excavations of 1987 he has been prominent in researching the origins of the Rose, both in 1587 and in 1592, and he is Deputy Chair of the Rose Theatre Trust. At the time of this lecture he was involved in a reconstruction of the Rose in Lennox, Massachusetts, and the lecture considered both the historical Rose and also the problems of producing a version of the building for the twenty-first century.
