Summary
COI synopsis: A glimpse of an English market-town of Stratford Upon Avon, on the banks of the River Avon in the county of Warwickshire, where thousands of visitors come every year to honour the memory of William Shakespeare. The house in which the great poet was born four centuries ago, and Holy Trinity Church where he was buried, can still be seen. His immortal plays live on, performed in Stratford’s Memorial Theatre by the finest actors of the day to audiences from every country of the world.
