You can catch the famous RSC alumni in cinemas now, as thriller The Good Liar comes to the big screen.

Head to the cinema this week and you'll find RSC actors Helen Mirren (Honorary Associate Artist) and Ian McKellen starring together in new drama The Good Liar.

The film tells the story of Roy Courtnay, a charming conman played by Ian who plans to woo Helen's wealthy widow Betty and get his hands on her money. Helen was last at the RSC in 2016 to take part in our Shakespeare birthday celebrations, while Ian took to the stage earlier this year to support our Stitch In Time campaign with his one-man show, Ian McKellen on Stage.
