Stratford’s first Shakespearean Theatre

Sylvia Morris - The Shakespeare Club

Monday 16 December, 3.30 pm Wolfson Hall 

During its heyday the Shakespearean Theatre in Chapel Lane hosted some of the most successful actors of the mid-nineteenth century, but is now almost completely forgotten. This talk will explain how and why local people built this theatre, what went on there, and how it met its end in the 1870s.
