Royal Shakespeare Company

Royal Shakespeare Company

We perform Shakespeare’s plays, as well as works by Shakespeare’s contemporaries and plays by today’s writers. Our shows begin life in our Stratford workshops and theatres, where we design and build the sets, costumes and props, and rehearse and perform the plays in our three theatres: the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Swan Theatre and the Studio Theatre at The Other Place.
