Shakespeare North

About

Shakespeare North wants to celebrate the Elizabethan heritage of Knowsley near Liverpool and aims to bring Shakespearean theatre back to the area that has an important and often neglected place in the history of Elizabethan drama. The support and patronage of the Earls of Derby at Knowsley Hall played a notable part in the development of Shakespearean drama.

Shakespeare North aims to make Knowsley once again a place where actors, writers, artists, students and young people will be able to study and practise the plays of Shakespeare. A place which will attract scholars, students and visitors from all over the world. To achieve this vision Shakespeare North has bold ambitions. It will build again The Playhouse in Prescot where, over four hundred years ago, as the only purpose-built playhouse outside London, Elizabethan drama was enjoyed by the people of the region.
