Complete at last: Bennetts Associates' renovation scheme for Elisabeth Scott's landmark 1932 Royal Shakespeare Theatre

The Royal Shakespeare Company celebrates its 50th birthday season with the grand reopening of its transformed Royal Shakespeare Theatre at a cost of £112.8 million. The temporary Courtyard Theatre folds curtains on the sold-out smash hit that is Matilda, awaiting one last flourish in the Olympics Shakespeare Festival next year before its intended demolition. New productions of Macbeth, King Lear and Romeo and Juliet inaugurate the revamped RST, while London operations transfer from the Roundhouse to Hampstead Theatre for the premieres of three new plays. The season is capped with a six-week summer residency in New York. Full season listings below.

There is no "the" in Double Falshood (sic), and Shakespeare and Fletcher did not write it. It was written by Lewis Theobald ca. 1727. The weight of current scholarly opinion, however, is that it is based on a now-lost play by Shakespeare and Fletcher that was titled Cardenio (or something of the sort), which was in turn based on the "Cardenio" episode of Don Quixote.
