RSC Opens Doors to Public & Big Ideas???
Date: 13 May 2003
Anyone wondering what makes the Royal Shakespeare Company tick should get thee to Stratford this weekend. On Sunday 18 May 2003, the RSC will hold an Open Day, with usually out-of-bounds areas of the Royal Shakespeare, Swan and Other Place theatres open to the public. There will also be various guided tours, masterclasses and talks with actors, directors, designers and craftspeople. Newly installed artistic director Michael Boyd will also be on hand to, according to publicity material, share some "exclusive behind-the-scenes secrets". On the evidence of recent interviews, Boyd has no shortage of ideas for the company. In addition to some of his already announced plans (See News, 4 Dec 2002), Boyd's future proposals apparently include a comprehensive RSC mounting of all of Shakespeare's major tragedies, a Laurence Boswell-curated season devoted to the Spanish Golden Age and a no-holds-barred Shakespeare Festival featuring productions from theatres across the UK as well as the RSC. In the meantime, all events for this weekend's Open Day are free. For further information, visit the RSC website.
