REAL STUDIOS BRINGS SHAKESPEARE BACK TO LIFE AT NEW PLACE
Through planting and sculptural elements, Gillespies and Expedition Engineering's landscape recreate the home where Shakespeare spent his last 19 years as a family man and gentleman - a house that was, sadly demolished, two centuries ago. In the adjacent Grade 1 listed building, Real Studios uses specially commissioned A/V installations, stunning theatrical displays and sculptural set-pieces to evoke Shakespeare's family and professional life. A radically new presentation of Shakespeare's life and times has opened its doors in Stratford-on-Avon. New Place is both a narrative landscape, tracing the contours of his original family home, and a two-storey, immersive and entertaining exhibition in the adjacent historic house, designed by Real Studios.
