British Academy-funded international scholarly project contributes to Shakespeare On Tour

News •

Shakespeare On Tour will broadcast the first of over 200 stories across BBC Local Radio stations and regional television in England and at bbc.co.uk/shakespeareontour today (Monday 21 March).

To help bring these stories to life, the BBC has been working with the British Library to unearth stories from their historic collection of theatre playbills relating to Shakespeare performances across the UK, and an academic project spanning 40 years called Records of Early English Drama (REED), which is funded by the British Academy.

Records of Early English Drama (REED) is an international scholarly project that is establishing for the first time the context from which the drama of Shakespeare and his contemporaries grew.
