Royal Shakespeare Company at The Barbican

Royal Shakespeare Company at The Barbican

The Globe may be the home of Shakespeare, but the RSC at The Barbican surely gives it a run for its money.  Less married to the traditional than the former, RSC’s adaptations are re-worked and modernized making Shakespeare accessible to an audience without losing any authenticity in the process. This season a short run of Macbeth played with an interesting twist. It was adapted in the context of refugee performers fleeing from Congo. Hamlet, staring Benedict Cumberbatch, is the hot ticket for next year. Meanwhile, Henry IV Parts I and II run from November 2014 to January 2015 so book your tickets now.
