The world’s most famous playwright and Britain’s most celebrated export, William Shakespeare, has made his way into the headlines more than 400 years after his death. His original playhouse, The Curtain Theatre in Shoreditch has been unearthed and is set to be the showpiece of Galliard’s brand new mixed-use development, The Stage. The heritage centre and sunken amphitheatre will sit in the central piazza, and will be open to the public as a new cultural destination.
