The Curtain theatre, north of the river Thames in the cities Shoreditch area, was home to Shakespeare's company the Lord Chamberlain's Men, before the riverside Globe theatre was built. Remains of walls forming the gallery and the yard within the venue were discovered by archaeologists from Museum of London Archaeology. The Curtain opened in 1577, close to London's first playhouse, which was known simply as The Theatre. The venue took its name from Curtain Close, a nearby street. The Lord Chamberlain's Men moved to the Curtain in 1597 after getting into a dispute with The Theatres landlord. The Lord Chamberlain's Men left the Curtain in 1599 for the Globe, the theatre they'd built using timbers smuggled from the original Theatre. The Curtain survived as a theatre at least until the 1620s, making it the longest-lived of London's Elizabethan playhouses. Some experts say it may have remained in use until the English Civil War in the 1640s. Archaeologists stumbled upon the Curtain's remains on Hewett Street after work began on a real estate development project last October. Soon after the remains were found in an exploratory dig, architects began drawing up plans to preserve the remains while allowing the development to go ahead. London has been celebrating its cultural heritage with a world Shakespeare festival taking place at the Globe and across Britain, as part of a festival timed to coincide with the Olympics this summer. The festival runs through November.
