The Container Globe has been proposed as a recreation of the original theatre, using shipping containers rather than wood.
The remains of the theatre where Shakespeare’s Hamlet may have been first performed has been granted legal protection by the government.
The last surviving play script handwritten by William Shakespeare is to be made available online by the British Library.
