Royal Shakespeare Theatre

Our Unwrapped demonstrations offer a peek into the rehearsal room, with the Assistant Director and members of the cast, often our understudies, looking at one or two particular moments from the play. They give an insight into how a scene is taken off the page and onto the stage, with the actors and Assistant Director showing the type of exercises and discussion that took place during rehearsals.

Does your society represent you?

Does your society represent you?

Studio Theatre@The Other Place

As You Like It opens as Britain leaves the European Union. In Shakespeare’s lifetime scientific discoveries were questioning religious dogma. In these times of great change how are our feelings of conformity and belonging affected? Can you be who you want? Can you determine your path through life, free of the restrictions of convention? What does leaving the Court for the Forest of Arden mean for Rosalind and the other characters in the play? Panel includes director Kimberley Sykes.
