The opening of The Shakespeare North Playhouse

The Shakespeare North Playhouse will open to the public in the summer of 2022. The much-anticipated arts venue in Prescot will complete the Shakespearean triangle with The Globe in London and The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) in Stratford-upon-Avon. Alongside innovative, high-profile Shakespearean drama, The Playhouse will also host a wide-ranging programme of performances and cultural activity that spans art forms and appeals to a broad range of audiences.

The programme for the opening season is due to be announced soon.
