London City South
Spend a weekend exploring London through the eyes of Elizabethan fans of William Shakespeare in the 450th anniversary year of the birth of the Bard. Brett Gamboa, professor of English, will deliver lectures and offer insights during this one-of-a-kind Dartmouth on Location international program.
Visit historic venues where Shakespeare’s works were originally performed, including Hampton Court royal palace and the Middle Temple. Walk along the Thames River through the Southwark area, the 17th-century location of the theater district.
In the wondrous surroundings of Shakespeare’s Globe—the fascinating recreation of the circa 1599 Globe Theater—view The Comedy of Errors and laugh along with others at the confusion surrounding the meeting of Antipholus and Dromio of Syracuse and Antipholus and Dromio of Ephesus.
Finally, enjoy a farewell dinner at the gracefully restored Tudor Barn Restaurant in Eltham.
