RSC in the world


The RSC is passionately committed to maintaining and deepening the modern world's connection to Shakespeare.

To achieve this, the RSC is dedicated to transforming the experience of Shakespeare in performance, promoting international collaboration, supporting new writing.

The RSC is also committed to changing the way Shakespeare is introduced to young people through our First Encounter initiative.
