Further Updates from the Royal Shakespeare Company:

Now everyone will be able to tread the boards in the new Royal Shakespeare Theatre
As part of the work taking place on the transformation of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the original teak stage floor from the 1932 building is currently being re-laid in the new foyer spaces that form the entrances to the theatre’s new auditorium. It gives everyone visiting the new theatre the chance to ‘tread the boards’ of the original stage where many of the world’s greatest actors, including the likes of Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Laurence Olivier, Antony Sher, Patrick Stewart and David Tennant, have performed.
