RSC to perform eight plays at the Roundhouse

22nd June 2010

The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) has confirmed that it will return to London's Roundhouse later this year.

A ten-week series of eight William Shakespeare plays specially adapted for children and families, including versions of Hamlet and The Comedy of Errors, will be performed by the troupe from November 30th.

The programme, which runs until February 5th 2011, will also include full performances of Romeo and Juliet, Antony and Cleopatra, The Winter's Tale, Julius Caesar, As You Like It and King Lear.

Michael Boyd, artistic director at the RSC, commented: 'From work of great emotion, elemental chaos and haunting tragedy, to moments of subversive wit and unabashed clowning, the cast have responded to a repertoire encompassing the broadest scope of human experience.'

The Roundhouse will also see the company build a special stage with a 750-seat auditorium running around it to replicate the RSC's temporary theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon.

In August, the Roundhouse will host a number of events as part of the Camden Fringe festival. Other venues participating in the festival include Camden People's Theatre, the Etcetera Theatre, the Shaw Theatre, the Camden Head and the Lion and Unicorn Theatre.
