Until 3 November 2013
A journey through Shakespeare's natural world, revealed through highlights from our Costume Collection.
Shakespeare's characters, stories and words are rich with references to nature, from stormy seas, magical woods and wild forests, to plants, precious stones, the weather, moon and stars. Displaying the skilful craft of costume making and design, Into the Wild shows how those themes are continuously interpreted and designed in diverse and imaginative ways through costume over the years.
It is an exclusive chance to see rarely displayed costumes and includes many worn by some of our most famous actors including Peggy Ashcroft, Ian McKellen, Juliet Stevenson and David Tennant.
Into the Wild is part of In Stitches: A celebration of RSC costume.
Monday - Saturday : 10am – 7.30pm
Sunday : 10am – 5pm

MY RSC GALLERY
Throughout the building
My RSC Gallery is an exhibition of over 50 boxes embedded in the theatre walls, each containing miniature artwork created by the public, schools, RSC staff, creative teams and actors in response to a competition asking people to create a piece of art inspired by Shakespeare, theatre or the RSC.
Explore the building to find the little boxes and lift the lids to reveal the stories and inspirations behind each one. Book a theatre tour to see them all. My RSC Gallery was created for the RSC by artist Luke Jerram with artwork selected through competitions during summer 2010.
Exhibition open from 10 am every day until the building closes.
