Dress rehearsal photo showing how the Globe stage was decorated with honeysuckle trellis-work, benches and a working fountain - all made using period techniques. The design was based on research into how English craftspeople might have approached working in an Italian style. Cast included: Josie Lawrence, Yolanda Vazquez, Mariah Gale and Ann Ogbomo
