The Dell: Applications now open

The Dell

We invite you to join in our Summer Season in Stratford-upon-Avon and bring your performance to The Dell, the RSC's open air performance space. Now in its ninth year, we invite you to take part in this exciting and popular season of outdoor shows.

The Dell offers great potential for amateur theatre groups, universities and semi-professional companies to bring an already established piece of work or to create something especially for the space.

Application Process
Submissions are by open application to the RSC and will be shortlisted by a panel.
Performances should be no longer than 1hr 30mins and should be written or inspired by Shakespeare or his contemporaries.
Performance times are available on weekends throughout June, July and August.
There are two performance slots a day, although the exact time of each performance may vary depending on local events.

If you would like to take part, please download The Dell brief (PDF, 222KB) and application form (PDF, 144KB) and return to by Friday 21 March 2014
