* Venue: The Rose Theatre, Bankside, 56 Park Street, London, SE1 9AS. Nearest Station: London Bridge.
* Cost: No charge. At their own discretion, attendees may wish to make a small donation towards The Rose's efforts to raise funds for further excavation work, and development of the theatre.
* Places: This event is open to both members and non-members. Although the event is free, it would help us gauge numbers if you can let event organiser Barbara Wooding ( know in advance that you plan to attend.
* Summary: Dr. Duxfield will give a lecture developed from his 2009 Hoffman Prize winning essay in the very theatre on Bankside where Marlowe's play The Jew of Malta was first performed in the early 1590's. The lecture will begin at 11am and last for approximately 50 minutes, after which Dr. Duxfield will be happy to take questions.
