Metamorphosis of ‘New Place’

Ever since 1759, there has been a space on the corner of Chapel Street and Chapel Lane, Stratford-upon-Avon, the site of New Place, Shakespeare’s family home since 1597. From 2010 to 2015, The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust (with Staffordshire University) excavated the site, Dr Paul Edmondson argues it is now high time for a metamorphosis in Shakespearian biography, as well as for New Place itself, which is being newly presented for the 2016 anniversary year.
