We believe Shakespeare is for everyone. We want to inspire and captivate audiences and transform lives through amazing experiences of Shakespeare’s plays and live theatre.
This year we have explored Shakespeare’s fascination with Rome and staged 27 productions and co-productions, alongside a huge range of events, exhibitions and education activity. We’ve taken our work to new audiences digitally and on tour, and broadcast Live From Stratford-upon-Avon in 28 countries, including China for the first time.
We celebrated creative talent everywhere, launching Next Generation ACT and Backstage. We staged more BSL-integrated, Chilled and Relaxed performances, to ensure everyone feels welcome at the RSC, and we continued our focus on giving young people an inspirational first experience of Shakespeare through RSC Education.
