The Globe Theatre is utterly incredible. Watching the blue sky darken, go grey, and then black whilst the actors strut about the stage, as planes fly overhead, and the air grows steadily colder is just an awe-inspiring way to watch a play. It was utterly amazing watching Macbeth on Friday: the performance shocking and moving. I confess, then, that my highlight of the evening was running to the gift shop in the intermission, and giddily buying this mug.
£7 from the shop (you can buy it online for sure), this gorgeous cup shows the “two tribes, both alike in dignity” in kitschy lovehearts-and-arrows. It is both silly and serious all at once and I love it!
