Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Halls Croft and Shakespeare's Birthplace
Shakespeare's Stories is a partnership exhibition between the Royal Shakespeare Company and the
Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, inspired by three of Shakespeare's 'shipwreck' plays: Twelfth Night, The Tempest and The Comedy of Errors.
Created in collaboration with international storyteller Jan Blake and theatre designer Lily Arnold, the exhibition explores themes of exile, migration and brave new worlds, and features objects from the RSC and SBT collections, as well as items loaned from the British Museum.
Working with the Coventry Migrant and Refugee Centre, we also hear from the voices of world refugees who have experienced such journeys first hand, as they reflect on how Shakespeare's words still resonate today.
Follow these global journeys across three venues in Stratford-upon-Avon: the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Hall's Croft and Shakespeare's Birthplace.
