Swan Theatre in Stratford Upon Avon

Swan Theatre, Stratford Upon Avon

The Swan Theatre is a theatre belonging to the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. It is built on to the side of the larger Royal Shakespeare Theatre, occupying the Victorian Gothic structure that formerly housed the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre that preceded the RST but was destroyed by fire.

Trevor Nunn and Terry Hands were joint artistic directors of the RSC when the company opened The Swan, its third theatre in Stratford. Designed by Michael Reardon, it has a deep thrust stage, modern lighting and sound technology, and is a galleried, intimate 430-seat auditorium.
