Whether the RSC will throw its hat into the EIF or Fringe ring remains hush-hush, but it’s likely that it would present a mix of classical and new work at the world’s largest arts festival. Currently, most of the Shakespeare offerings at the Fringe or student productions or spoofs such as this year’s MTM: UK Award-winning Hamlet! The Musical. The RSC has already dipped its toe into the UK summer festival pond via the annual Latitude Festival, which takes place in a field in Suffolk each July.
