Though reasonably well received by the media, Adrian Noble's recently announced changes for the Royal Shakespeare Company haven't found favour everywhere, including amongst its own ranks. One member of the company, Jeffrey Dench, has reportedly written to Noble to say that he no longer wishes to be considered an Associate Actor there. Backstage staff from the Barbican residency, many of whom have worked for the RSC for decades, are also understandably disgruntled. But the possibility of further staff redundancies in Stratford is also looming. One insider told Whatsonstage.com that the changes will lead to the effective closure as a performance venue of the intimate Other Place theatre in Stratford.
