It was back in May when we first revealed it might be coming.

And now it has been confirmed that a pop-up Shakespearean theatre is heading to York.

In the first project of its kind in a European city, a recreation of the 16th century Rose Theatre, which was a forerunner to the Globe, will be built next to Clifford’s Tower.

The idea of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, which is based in Welburn north of York, the temporary construction could run a ten-week season of plays from next June.

These would include a production of Richard III, featuring York’s favourite dead king.

So not only was tricky Dicky dug up from a car park, his play is to be performed in one – as the theatre will be constructed over part of the Castle car park.

The three other plays in the season are MacbethA Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Romeo and Juliet.
