The RSC and the University of Birmingham are engaged in an exciting collaboration at The Other Place theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. Opened in 2016 to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, The Other Place is a creative hub for rehearsal, training, learning and research.
Through jointly-delivered postgraduate programmes, students have the chance to access creative and teaching spaces at The Other Place, and to draw on the experience of RSC artists and practitioners.
