“For me, giving to the RSC is incredibly rewarding. It has given me the opportunity to engage more closely with the Company, to observe aspects of the creative process coming together, whether that’s getting to know the cast and creative team, seeing how the scenes develop in rehearsals, or watching the costumes being made and sets being built. It has been great fun and fascinating to learn more about how world-class theatre is made here in the Midlands. I have been deeply moved to see audience members of all ages and from all backgrounds around me enjoying the performances onstage – to see lives being transformed through theatre in front of my very eyes, that’s absolutely priceless.”
