Shakespeare in Ten Acts.

There will be an exhibition at London’s British Library to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death which will explore the impact of ten significant moments – from the first production of Hamlet to a digital-age deconstruction for the 21st century.  Together with paintings, photographs, costumes and props you will be able to see rare printed editions, including the First Folio, and the only surviving play script in his own handwriting.

Running from the 15th April to the 6th September this could be something to include in your plans for the spring/summer.

In addition, By me William Shakespeare : a Life in Writing is being held at Somerset House between the 3rd February and the 29th May. Among many documents on view will be his last will and testament. Tickets and details from: http://www.bymewilliamshakespeare.org
