Opening the season is Shakespeare’s dark comedy, Measure for Measure. Directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran, this intense and compelling production is shockingly relevant for today. Following this, an imaginative new take on Shakespeare’s riotous comedy As You Like It, directed by Kimberley Sykes. Come on a journey of laughter, romance and self-discovery and completing the season is The Taming of The Shrew, directed by Justin Audibert, the ultimate battle of the sexes is turned on its head in a fresh portrayal of gender politics.
