Hello everybody! I'm writing this post today about an idea that I've had that has seemed to go down amazingly so far. Yesterday, The Globe theatre announced their Summer Season of shows and Othello was among them. I've wanted to see Othello for so many years now, and have missed out on many opportunities - so what better way to see it than with fellow bookish people? You don't have to be a blogger, just part of the bookish community. Authors, bloggers, YouTubers, publishers, readers - everyone is welcome.

There are around 30 people interested already, so this will definitely be happening. Here's some more information:
  • The Globe is situated in London and is a 10 minute walk from underground stations, Blackfriars and Mansion House.
  • There are a wide range of tickets. It seems most of us will be buying standing tickets, which are £5. You are very involved with the show if you're standing, so if this is something you're not comfortable with, sitting may be better for you. Seated tickets start at £22. If you're using a wheelchair, you can still buy a standing ticket and be very involved, from the comfort of your chair. If you're under 18, you get £3 off your ticket.
  • If you'd like more information on the show's plot and cast, you can do so here.
  • There is a Pizza Express opposite the venue that I thought we could lunch in before/after the show - depending the running time of the show and the show times (which are released very soon).
Now to the organising. I have a list of people interested. If you could let me know via email (zoecollins1994@gmail.com), DM or tweet if you're interested in the pizza, the show or both - that would be great. Also, would you prefer me to take money and book the tickets altogether, or for us to do it all individually and just meet there? Tweet me answers or leave them in the comments.

The show doesn't open until July, but I know there's lots of you travelling quite a distance so I want it to be sorted very soon, so people have plenty of time to plan. I am thinking in the Summer holidays, in middle August. Possibly a weekend. And probably a matinee. I would love to know your thoughts on this and please let me know if you're interested - this could be a really amazing day for us all.
