Made in Stratford-upon-Avon - Seen around the world. Everyone at the Royal Shakespeare Company, from actors to technicians, milliners to musicians, plays a part in creating the world seen on stage. The work begins its life at the Stratford workshops and theatres and is shared with audiences across the world through touring, residencies, cinema broadcasts and online activity. Wherever the RSC is experienced, audiences experience work that is made in Shakespeare’s home town. Shakespeare has been performed and celebrated in Stratford for centuries and the RSC has trained generations of the very best theatre makers since the Company was founded in 1961, pioneering contemporary approaches to Shakespeare’s plays, as well as staging the work of those who inspired him and the work of today’s playwrights.
