This book analyzes performances at the reconstructed Globe Theatre in London between 1996 and 2004 by focusing on the new Globe's most defining characteristic: authenticity. The book addresses the question of why authenticity has become so crucial in late 20th and early 21st century Britain and what productions of the "authentic Shakespeare" say about contemporary identities.

The author approaches this work with the eyes of a performance theorist and cultural critic..." - Professor Robert Shaughnessy, The University of Kent, England"
