Shakespeare Hut in Open House Weekend

If you haven’t managed to see Digital Drama’s audio visual installation Resurrecting the Shakespeare Hut, it is part of the Open House Weekend on the 17th and 18th of September and then open daily until the 23rd September at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Visit the Open House website to find out more details.

Resurrecting the Shakespeare Hut is a Heritage Lottery funded project created by Digital Drama and focused around a public installation commemorating the 100th anniversary of the opening of the YMCA Shakespeare Hut, which was on the grounds of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in Keppel Street, WC1.

YMCA Huts were a regular sight in England, France and on all the fighting fronts during the First World War, providing a ‘home from home’ for soldiers to rest, recover and be entertained. However, the Keppel Street hut was built with a special purpose – to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death and to entertain the troops through the playwright’s work, keeping them away from the dangerous London streets.
