The Globe’s 2002 production of Twelfth Night was the culmination of its experiments with ‘Original Practices’, i.e. recreating and replicating as many of the performance practices of Shakespeare’s own company as possible, such as all-male casting and handmade, authentically Elizabethan costumes. The company initially staged the play at Middle Temple Hall, where its first recorded performance took place in 1602, before transferring to the Globe Theatre. This page from the production’s ‘Costume Bible’ shows a glove design by Jenny Tiramani, for Mark Rylance in the role of Olivia.
