Here’s a great new discovery, again from the i newspaper:
“Shakespeare may have debuted several of his most famous plays in a small town near Liverpool. Plans are now afoot to re-create a period theatre in Prescot, Merseyside. Over 400 years ago, the Playhouse in Prescot, Knowsley, was the only purpose-built indoor theatre outside of London and is believed to have staged some of the playwright’s work . Plans will be submitted on behalf of the Shakespeare North Trust for a new theatre and education centre that would create a “Shakespeare Triangle” between the north-west, Stratford and London.
