New York City
During 1590 in Shakespeare’s London, the southern shore of the Thames River – called The Banksyde – was home to brigands, brothels, rogue
businesses, and an explosion of theatrical creativity not seen before or
since. Londoners would cross the river to experience plays, contests,
shows, and to participate in the creation of a new language and a new
way of looking at the world.
Join the festivities of The Bankside Festival at the south end of
the property and on the banks surrounding Founders’ Theatre, Founders’
Alley, and the Rose Footprint, where you’ll find poets, dancers,
musicians, and capering clowns. Josie’s Place is open before and
after all performances, offering light fare and drinks for purchase.
Picnickers are welcome on the grounds. The walking trails are open
at the north end of the property, near Spring Lawn.
