'Authentic' Shakespeare on the Globe Stage
The Globe Theatre in London is to stage an entire Shakespeare play in its original pronunciation.
Actors in Troilus and Cressida will recite their lines with accents believed to have been heard on the stage during Elizabethan times.
It follows on from brief experiments with original pronunciation during the company's run of Romeo and Juliet in June 2004. The six-week run of Troilus and Cressida begins on 24 August.
