The Royal Shakespeare Company

  • Comment

The Royal Shakespeare Company has unveiled plans to create a waterfront theatre village, redeveloping its historic home (pictured above) in Stratfordupon-Avon. The £100 million proposal includes plans to demolish the current Royal Shakespeare Theatre by Elizabeth Scott (1932), and build a landmark modern 1,050-seat Shakespeare playhouse on the site. Dutch architect Erick van Egeraat and theatre consultant Iain Mackintosh will move the proposals through to the design stage. Initial design ideas will be completed by early summer next year.The project is likely to be completed by 2008.
