Is This a Dagger? is a new interactive exhibition about theatrical props by artists Stand + Stare.
Stand + Stare have worked with the RSC Property Workshop to shine a spotlight on 12 props. Each object tells a different story, revealing the breadth of detail, historical research and skill needed to create them as well as the role they play on stage and how they interpret a designer's idea.
This interactive exhibition invites you to peek inside a fascinating world, explore objects used in past productions and hear directly from the people who make, source and use theatrical props everyday.
Stand + Stare is a collaboration between brother and sister, Barney and Lucy Heywood.
