RSC returns to Roundhouse in Dec 2010

The Royal Shakespeare Company have announced that they will return to London's Roundhouse Theatre, in north London, in December 2010 for a 10 week season.

The RSC's specially constructed thrust stage auditorium will be reinstated within the Roundhouse.

The repertoire will be drawn from the ensemble’s work in Stratford-Upon-Avon and will be accompanied by a major programme for young people, jointly devised by the RSC and the Roundhouse. Play titles will be announced next year.

Marcus Davey, Chief Executive, Roundhouse, said: “Following the great success of the RSC's Histories at the Roundhouse in 2008, we are thrilled that the RSC is returning for a further season. As part of our collaboration with the RSC, we're planning a new partnership of three high level projects with and for young people and schools in theatre, poetry and new media from across London. This work will form a central part of the RSC residency here and will enable us to provide more opportunities to inspire and engage young people through Shakespeare.”

This follows the previously mentioned RSC productions of Twelfth Night, at the West End's Duke of York's from 19 Dec 2009; and two productions at the Hampstead Theatre, in north London, Dunsinane by David Greig from 10 Feb 2010 and The Gods Weep by Dennis Kelly, from 11 Mar 2010.

Looking for the best seats...
