judidThe British Shakespeare Company is to build a reconstruction of the Elizabethan Rose Theatre in the North of England and is in talks to find the perfect location. Dame Judi Dench has donated the stunning reconstruction of the Rose Theatre from the Oscar-winning film Shakespeare in Love for this purpose. The original Rose Theatre built in 1587 is where William Shakespeare first performed his plays and also worked as an actor.

A charitable trust is being setup and the Rose Theatre is now in storage waiting to be reborn. A new website is being created and will be updated with full details shortly and should you require further information or wish to offer support, please contact Robert J Williamson: [email protected]
