By Helen Cross.

On Shakespeare's birthday in 1932, two young women set off from BIRMINGHAM to witness the opening of the new theatre at Stratford.

One dreams of meeting the Prince of Wales who is due to open the building, while the other would be happier going to the local cinema.

Meanwhile, the architect, a young woman called Elisabeth Scott, and the producer William Bridges-Adams, are worrying that the building and the play may not earn the praise they hoped for.
