Our 2022 partnership with Cunard will see us take Shakespeare to the high seas.

Guests sailing across the Atlantic on Cunard’s flagship, Queen Mary 2, will be able to enjoy exclusive theatrical experiences, including a unique blend of Shakespeare’s iconic love scenes in a brand new piece called Boundless as the Sea. 

They will also be able to experience our expertise in creating new work through an abridged version of our acclaimed 2018 production of Miss Littlewood: a new musical exploring the life of one of theatre’s most radical figures.

The onboard audiences will also be treated to some of our most popular productions in recent years through screenings in Queen Mary 2’s own cinema and staterooms.

insights into an actor’s craft

For guests who are interested in learning what it takes to be an RSC actor, the onboard cast will be leading a series of workshops that explore their craft.

Guests will also be able to access ‘Shakespeare Tales’, intimate, informal events where the actors will perform their personal favourite sonnets and speeches, and answer questions from the audience as to why these particularly speak to them.

We look forward to welcoming you onboard. Find out more about our partnership on the Cunard website.
