Shakespeare’s Globe is not only getting a new thatch but will enhance its collection with a Shakespeare First Folio as part of a donation of around 450 works including plays from the 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries. The donor, US playwright John Wolfson, has bequeathed these textual treasures to the Globe after his death to ensure the collection stays together in an appropriate place. Brilliant news for the Globe although now they’ll have to fundraise like billyo, to set up a suitable library for the precious plays.
