What the dickens? Solved by Misfits ~ Globe Theatre ~ by 


An easy Bubble Jeopardy puzzle…
What or more precisely where the dickens is this?

The Globe Theatre entrance gate. The Globe Theatre on the banks of the river Thames is a faithful reconstruction of the open-air playhouse first built in 1599, where Shakespeare worked and for which he wrote many of his greatest plays.

    I know this one too!………….lol. I was there on Christmas morning, taking pictures of St Pau’s from the Millennium Bridge just along the river a little from this. The Dickens reference is a red herring though; it should be Shakepeare, shouldn’t it? Add it to the challenge, before I solve it Laurie!………..lol

  • No red herrings involved, only those that might be swimming nearby… lol

    Tank you Laurie. I didn’t know that, but I do now.

  • I only fund out yesterday when I was pondering a title for this ‘jeopardy’. Amazing what we can learn from the web!
