1272 : A Shakespearean Tragedy in Halifax

The Theatre Royal, Halifax. Boarded-up, deserted. Tucked away down Shakespeare Street is the old actor's entrance. Once the gateway to music hall, melodrama, classical theatre and opera it is now the repository for stale urine and empty bottles. A Shakespearean tragedy in Halifax.

What a terrible shame; it's a great doorway.

Alas, many an old actor would be very familiar with stale urine and empty bottles.

Indeed a tragedy, to be, or not to be, I say To Be! Someone please, make this right again.

I wonder what Shakespeare would have made of this - a plague on all your houses, methinks.

When I lived in Charleston, SC, it was said that blue around the doors and windows kept out the witches. Wonder what is the reason for the bright blue here.
