Win four tickets to the RSC’s London Season at the Barbican
The Royal Shakespeare Company returns to the Barbican with three new Shakespeare productions, direct from Stratford-upon-Avon: As You Like It, The Taming of the Shrew and Measure for Measure. Featuring a company of 27 actors, this electrifying season explores the themes of morality, love, power and gender and sparks with striking resonance.
As You Like It “Inventive, playful, captivating” **** Daily Telegraph Blending physical comedy, music and storytelling, this As You Like It dares you to change your state of mind.
The Taming of the Shrew “A landmark production as women take charge” **** Evening Standard In this radical take on Shakespeare’s fierce and energetic comedy of gender, Baptista Minola is seeking to marry off her two sons, the sweet-tempered Bianco and the rebellious Katherine. Cue an explosive courtship and a keenly witty portrayal of hierarchy and power.
Measure for Measure “Excellent… a rolling mass of desire, repression and duplicity” **** Financial Times In a conflicted society of promiscuity and puritanical law, this new production unveils a shadowy world of repression and dubious morals, which feels astonishingly urgent today.
