SHAKESPEARE North Playhouse is offering 400 theatre tickets to see its latest show for only 1p.

This year marks the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s First Folio, which is the first collected edition of Shakespeare's plays.

The folio contains 36 out of some 38 Shakespeare plays, collated and published in 1623, seven years after Shakespeare’s death, only 18 of the plays had previously been printed during his lifetime.

Without the First Folio some of Shakespeare’s most revered works may not have survived and would not be known today.

To celebrate this, Shakespeare North Playhouse will be offering theatre goers the chance to bag themselves tickets to The Book of Will for only 1p- the same price as it would’ve been in The Bard’s time!

The Book of Will is a witty, funny and fast-paced play that tells the story of the First Folio’s conception.

To save Shakespeare’s works for the ages, the Kings Men hatch a near-impossible plan to collect his words on paper, setting them off on a race against time through London.

Their hearts are on the line and those they love are counting on them – to maybe leave a legacy that will last forever.
