On 20 March 1961 it was announced that the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon would become known as the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and its company as the Royal Shakespeare Company. 2011 will mark the 50th Anniversary of this important moment in the history of the RSC and their main Stratford theatre. To mark this occasion the journal 'Shakespeare' is planning a special issue dedicated to the RSC and its 50-year history, for which it invites papers (10,000 words maximum).
