Take your chances queuing for a seat for Measure for Measure at the Rose Theatre. The Rose, I hear you say? Yes. Forget the Globe, the remains of the Rose live opposite the Globe's original Shakespearean site on Park Street, set back from today's Southbank. In the basement of an ordinary looking office building lie the archaeological remains of the oldest playhouse in Southwark. Preserved and illuminated the cool, dank, muddy banks of the Thames preserve theatrical secrets in the mud whilst the Lights of London Productions bring Shakespeare's problematic play to life. Important: Take a cushion to sit on and wrap up warm - really warm! Tonight and tomorrow, 7.30pm, £10/7.50, t: 020 7261 9565.
