An evening at Shakespeare's Globe Theater

Stompin' "the Yard"
Fortunately for us, summer is play season at the Globe, a reconstruction of the original playhouse where the Bard's works were performed.  We bought tickets to stand in "the yard", general admission standing room, for just 5 Euro!
We saw Troilus & Cressida (click here for the Sparknotes or here for more history) a tragic love story involving the Trojans & Greeks. It was a good mix of humor and seriousness and was well performed. We were definitely thankful for the intermission during the 3 hour period though!
