New exhibition from the RSC: The Play's the Thing

Did anyone else see that Shakespeare experts this week announced Kit Marlowe as the co-author on the Bard's three Henry VI plays?

That's BIG news in the world of Elizabethan literature. And there's even more this week!

Because the RSC in Stratford has just unveiled its new exhibition: The Play's the Thing. Two years in the making, there will be masses of props to look at and try on from the RSC's extensive collection. You can also view a rare first folio of Shakespeare's works.

The wonders of modern technology also allow you to act opposite Ewart James Walters in Hamlet.

My favourite exhibit? It's going to be a Lady Macbeth dress from 1903 – the oldest piece in the collection.

It's taking place at the Swan Theatre and runs until March 31 next year. I'm going to try and go before Christmas.
