Stratford-Upon-Avon, England

The Royal Shakespeare Theatre is a 1,040 seat theater situated on the banks of the River Avon and owned by the Royal Shakespeare Company. The building as seen here dates from 1932. The theatre is a one-room theatre, which allows the actors and the audience to share the same space, as they did when Shakespeare’s plays were first produced. The stage reaches out into the audience, who are seated on three sides of it. This one-room theatre creates a more traditional Shakespearean performance area, allowing the audience to draw closer to the actors and creating a more personal theatre experience.
