Book Launch and Garden Opening: The New Fortune Theatre : Help celebrate the launch of The New Fortune Theatre and opening of The Shakespeare Garden Other events...
Unfortunately this event has been cancelled.

This event has been cancelled due to scheduled works that affect the site.


UWA Publishing and The Centre for the History of Emotions warmly invite you to the book launch of The New Fortune Theatre: That Vast Open Stage, edited by Ciara Rawnsley and Robert White, and the opening of the Shakespeare Garden.

Built in 1964, the New Fortune Theatre at The University of Western Australia is a unique reconstruction of the Fortune Playhouse built in London in 1600, the year Hamlet was performed at the rival Globe playhouse. This book, richly illustrated with rare archival images, traces its romantic origins, and debates the possibilities it offers for creating strong emotional effects in audiences in such an intimate but imposing venue.

The book will be launched by Professor Susan Broomhall.

At the same event the first stage of a new Shakespeare-inspired theme Garden, featuring flora referred to in the plays and poems, will be opened by Professor Matthew Tonts, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Education.

Both projects are supported by the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions.

Refreshments will be available.

Please RSVP by Friday 4 May.
Speaker(s) Professor Susan Broomhall, Professor Matthew Tonts, Robert White, Ciara Rawnsley
