Shakespeare: Experience The Bard
1 - 24 April
A celebration of everything Shakespeare!
On the anniversary of the Bard's birth and death (believed to be on the same day) Stratford Shakespeare Trust presents a selection of costume, film from Auckland library collection, sculpture, photography and written word at PTG in Stratford. Beautiful garments from the Globe Theatre Company NZ will sit alongside a selection of images taken by photographers based in Taranaki. They were asked to take black and white photographs inspired by William Shakespeare.
Above: Wall hangings (replicas) from the original textiles sent to the Globe, London in the 1990s. 500 New Zealand women were a part of this generous gift to the Shakespeare Globe stage.

A proud collaboration between
