ABOUT

HERE'S WHERE YOU COME IN

How this happened

We are academic collaborators who have been sharing our work with each other at conferences (including SAA and ASTR) for the last few years. We share a passion for archival records of Shakespearean performance. After chatting at the 2016 SAA meeting about the wealth of events being organised for the

“deathiversary” year we decided to start collecting and archiving data.

The task has grown in scale far beyond what we imagined and now we need your help!
