Dominic Dromgoole, artistic director of Shakespeare’s Globe, talks to Heather Neill about the touring work the theatre does, centring on this summer’s portable production of Hamlet. Recorded: 11 May 2011.

There was an idea prevalent for a long time that they only went touring when there was plague in London, or when the disapproval of the city fathers got so strong that they felt they had to get out of London – that’s not the case. They went touring because they liked it – they went touring all the time.
