The Shakespeare Tercentenary of 1864

by Richard Foulkes

A story of earnest endeavour and farcical misunderstandings attendant upon the Victorian attempt to improve on Garrick’s Jubilee and how the genius of Shakespeare triumphed over committees, resignations, political intrigue, local pride and metropolitan scorn, leaving a legacy which developed into the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre and the RSC.
