This month the Playhouse went live at the National Building Museum (see previous post from June 2022). Scroll down for images of the installation and their newly installed stage for performances of A Midsummer Night's Dream throughout July and August 2022!

I'm delighted with the way the artwork looks within the installation and cannot quite believe that those etched illustrations I created are now several feet high! It's lovely to see some of the pictures coming through on social media too and I hope visitors to the NBM enjoy looking at the artwork.
I must give thanks here to the Imaging Services at the National Library of Scotland for their digitisation of the etched illustrations in A Knavish Lad. They took my etchings - which were a mere 15cm high - and created files of them with a resolution high enough that they could be reproduced at the size you see here in these photos.
There is little chance I'd ever have been able to get such a high resolution of those etchings with my own scanner and / or camera, so a big thanks is owed to them for their help here.
The Playhouse is on until Sunday 28th August 2022 at the National Building Museum, Washington D.C. Further information is available at https://www.nbm.org/national-building-museum-and-folder-shakespeare-library-bring-the-wonders-of-shakespeare-to-the-great-hall/
