A historic gem hidden in a modern exterior….

 

This wonderful new “old” theatre first came to my notice when it featured on BBC 24-hr News, so I hurried to learn more, which I found here.

We all know about the Globe Theatre in London, but this reproduction of a 16th-century (the above article says 17th century) theatre is in Prescot, Liverpool. The BBC’s excellent photography showed how immaculate a work of art it is, and that only wood was used throughout.

Its only drawback (as far as I’m concerned) is that it appears to be housed inside the Shakespeare North Playhouse, which is a decidedly modern block that successfully hides the treasure within.

Go here to discover more.
