Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac

James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano - or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?

Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

Lucy Kirkwood's The Welkin

One life in the hands of 12 women.

The Welkin is an unpredictable, gritty, thriller. A bold story packed with tension and dark humour, told in a striking, contemporary way.

Rural Suffolk in England, 1759. As the country waits for Halley’s comet, a young woman is sentenced to hang for a heinous murder.

When she claims to be pregnant, a jury of 12 matrons are taken from their housework to decide whether she’s telling the truth, or simply trying to escape the noose. With only midwife Lizzy Luke prepared to defend the girl, and a mob baying for blood outside, the matrons wrestle with their new authority, and the devil in their midst.

James Macdonald (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) directs Maxine Peake (The Theory of Everything, Funny Cow) and Ria Zmitrowicz (Three Girls, Mr. Selfridge) in this bold and gripping thriller from Tony Award-nominated writer Lucy Kirkwood (Chimerica, Skins).

Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors

A man arrives in a strange town only to find that everyone knows his name, but thinks he’s someone else.

“So I to find a mother and a brother

In quest of them, unhappy, lose myself”

How do any of us really know who we are? A man arrives in a strange town only to find that everyone knows his name, but thinks he’s someone else. A woman wonders why her husband is not the man he was, but starts to rather like it. Confusion mounts as everyone uncouples from themselves. Will they ever find themselves again? And do they really want to?

Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, a fairytale farce of everyday miracles, mistaken identity and double vision, is directed by comedy master Phillip Breen (The Provoked Wife 2019, The Hypocrite 2017, The Merry Wives of Windsor 2012).

Miles Jupp will make his RSC debut as Antipholus of Syracuse in The Comedy of Errors

Shakespeare's Pericles

    Shakespeare’s touching and hopeful tale of loss and reconciliation located in a familiar world of precarious journeys.

 

Forced to flee his native land, Pericles becomes a refugee at the mercy of sea and strangers. Scarred by the heart-breaking loss of family and home, he submits to the rhythms of the ocean in the hope of a miracle. Located in a familiar world of precarious journeys and treacherous alliances, this is Shakespeare’s touching and hopeful tale of loss and reconciliation.

 Director Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC after her acclaimed Titus Andronicus (2017) and The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).
