Casting update

Nine members of the original RSC Histories Ensemble will perform at Shakespeare's Kings & Westminster Abbey - five special evenings of performance, music and interpretation staged in Westminster Abbey, in association with the Royal Shakespeare Company, taking place from 13 April - 11 May 2010 on Tuesday evenings. Some will read the parts they played in the Histories Cycle and others will be exploring new texts. The evenings are themed around different kings - all of whom have intimate links with Westminster Abbey.
