To mark Shakespeare’s birthday, writer Adrian Woodhouse presents photographs taken by Angus McBean between 1945 – 1962 when he worked at the Stratford Theatre (now the Royal Shakespeare Theatre) in Stratford-Upon-Avon, documenting all of Shakespeare’s 37 plays and the greatest theatrical talent of the time.

Adrian Woodhouse is a decorative art historian. His first book on Angus McBean came out in 1982 when he was still a Fleet Street gossip columnist and his full-length biography, Angus McBean: Facemaker, was published in 2006. Shakespeare by McBean is published by Manchester University Press.
