The RSC Heads For Haymarket

News   The RSC Heads For Haymarket

Another bit of good news for Adrian Noble: the RSC seems to have found a temporary home at one of the West End's most elegant and high-profile theatres, the Theatre Royal, Haymarket.

Following his father, Sir Peter, into the Haymarket will be RSC director Edward Hall, whose Rose Rage plays there from June.

Two productions from the RSC's main house at Stratford, Antony and Cleopatra, starring Sinead Cusack and Stuart Wilson, and Much Ado About Nothing starring Harriet Walter and Nicholas le Prevost, will transfer straight to the Haymarket. Antony and Cleopatra was performed at the Barbican, the RSC's previous London home, in 2000, with Alan Bates and Frances de la Tour in the title roles.
