Royal Shakespeare Company Offers a Radical Winter's Tale

News   Royal Shakespeare Company Offers a Radical Winter's Tale
 

The Winter's Tale opened at the Roundhouse on April 12, marking the beginning of the Royal Shakespeare Company's new approach to performing in London: finding new venues, preferably free of proscenium arches.

This radical new production from Matthew Warchus — based on film noir and with the actors speaking in American accents — attracted a younger-than-usual audience, and used the performance area in a radical way — with promenaders literally being roped into the action.
