News   Parliament Gets Involved in RSC Debate

The debate over Adrian Noble's radical plans for the RSC has gone all the way to the House of Commons. Parliament's Culture, Media and Sport Committee has asked Adrian Noble and others at the RSC to discuss the proposed demolition of the RSC's Startford-on-Avon home to make way for his proposed Shakespearean theatrical village.

Gerald Kaufman, the committee's Chairman, who referred to the existing theatre at Stratford as "clearly one of the most important artistic centres in the country" will see the delegation at the house of Commons next week.

The RSC's final regular season at the Barbican is currently under way, with Hamlet, Twelfth Night, King John and The Lieutenant of Inishmore to be joined shortly by The Prisoner's Dilemma and Julius Caesar.
