Secret Theatre for Shakespeare’s Globe
WORKSHOP: SUZI BATTERSBY, Chris fitzpatrick, katy d’cruz
We were hired by the world-famous Shakespeare’s Globe to create a very particular kind of severed head for their Secret Theatre production in 2017. We had to make a silicone prop head for Mary, Queen of Scots to match the actor portraying her but also painted up to imitate Tudor-style make-up, tear-stained from her distress before being executed.
The head was completed with a fantastic wig supplied by Shakespeare’s Globe Wig Department and beautiful eyes supplied by Cantor & Nissel.
