Talking Shakespeare

Join Gregory Doran and special guests as they talk about Shakespeare.

Please note: the current series of Talking Shakespeare has now finished. Recordings of some of our previous events are available for Patrons, Subscribers and Members.

An exclusive series of online, live events for RSC SubscribersMembers and Patrons. Our Artistic Director Gregory Doran invites some very special guests and RSC Associate and Honorary Associate Artists to join him to talk about Shakespeare, their memories of the RSC and more.

Please note, these events take place on the online platform Zoom. We'll email details of how to watch before each event starts. Tickets are free, but we would encourage all ticket buyers to make a donation of £10 to the Keep Your RSC campaign.

Our previous guests include Judi Dench, Patrick Stewart, David Tennant, Adjoa Andoh, Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren, amongst many others. The most recent series, recorded in March 2021, saw Gregory in conversation with three previous Artistic Directors: Adrian Noble, Trevor Nunn and Michael Boyd.
