Following its inaugural season last year, when it played to almost 80,000 people, garnering critical and popular acclaim as well as awards for ‚Best Cultural Experience‘ and ‚Best Attraction‘, Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre returns to York promising Revenge, Heroism, Magic and Mischief with this year’s line-up of plays.
