The Theatre, built in 1576, was the first of the famous London playhouses built in the now iconic polygonal form. Its fame has been further assured because William Shakespeare both acted there and wrote for it. For historians, the Theatre is important because of the wealth of documentary information, much of it derived from legal disputes. These papers also helped to more-or-less pinpoint its location years before archaeologists finally uncovered it in 2008.

This is a CG recreation of the Theatre and its surroundings created by a collaboration between Museum of London Archaeology and Cloak and Dagger Studios.
