The 74th RSC Summer School is going online for 2021
ABOUT THE SUMMER SCHOOL
Monday 23 August – Friday 27 August
We are pleased to announce the return of our much loved RSC Summer School with a week long programme of online talks, sessions with actors, insights and provocations from theatre makers, academics and reviewers, all to be enjoyed from the comfort of your home. The week will explore RSC productions past and present, including gems from our archive, special insights into our summer season production of The Comedy of Errors and discussions of some of the questions we should be asking when we stage Shakespeare in a world of accelerated change.
Each day will focus on a different play and include two streamed sessions as well as a ‘Green Room‘ discussion where summer schoolers can connect and reflect together. In addition, the week will include access to three full-length RSC productions that will be streamed specifically for summer school participants.
£180 for the week
£45 for a day ticket (see details below)
