The redevelopment began in February 2015 and will be completed in time for the 400th commemorations to mark William Shakespeare’s death on Saturday 23rd April.

The Other Place will be a 200-seat studio theatre which will begin hosting Page To Stage tours shortly after it re-opens. This brand new tour will give unprecedented access to the newly transformed rehearsal rooms and costume store at The Other Place. There will also be first-hand accounts from directors and actors, and the chance to peek into the vast costume hire store.

The RSC will use the auditorium (pictured) for the first time later this year with a new work festival in July. Titles will be announced in spring.

Funding for the new theatre came from a £3 million grant from the Arts Council England, the National Lottery and public donations.
