Founded by the pioneering American actor and director Sam Wanamaker, Shakespeare's Globe is a unique international resource dedicated to the exploration of Shakespeare's work and the playhouse for which he wrote, through the performance and education.

Together, the Globe Theatre Company, Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition and Globe Education seek to further the experience and international understanding of Shakespeare in performance through three central and inter-dependent activities:

1) The faithfully reconstructed Globe Theatre hosts an extensive exhibition about Shakespeare and the theatre of his day.

2) Producing excellent performances through productions of stimulating classic and new plays at the Globe Theatre.

3) The Globe is an international focal point for the study of Shakespeare in performance. The facilities at Bankside are a resource for students, teachers and academics from all over the world and Shakespeare’s Globe provides educational programmes and publishes material for students at all levels.

In Howard Brenton’s epic new play about the First World War, Jack Twigg, 19 years old, enlists in the London Regiment and goes on a journey he never imagined – nor did the rest of the world. On his way, he meets the pioneering medic Harold Gillies, who saves his life and his sanity. But who is the mysterious ‘Doctor Scroggy’ who appears at night in Gillies’s hospital dispensing champagne to the patients?

Howard Brenton and John Dove, the team that brought you Anne Boleyn (Best New Play – What’s On Stage Awards) return to the Globe depicting Gillies’s war against war. Hilarious and moving, Dr Scroggy’s War gives a sideways look at the First World War a hundred years after its onset.
