The plays are intended to be a contemporary response to The Roaring Girls season in the Swan Theatre, so we gave our writers an initial provocation:

'Well behaved women seldom make history'*

The plays will be performed in repertoire by the same cast in The Other Place at The Courtyard Theatre, a purpose-built studio theatre on the stage of The Courtyard Theatre

*The phrase was first coined by American historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich.

The RSC Ensemble is generously supported by THE GATSBY CHARITABLE FOUNDATION and THE KOVNER FOUNDATION
