RSC: Royal Shakespeare Company  

1784 RSC: Royal Shakespeare Company

Picturehouse Entertainment is delighted to announce three new productions, all coming to cinema screens in 2017, live from the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

The Royal Shakespeare Company creates theatre at its best, made in Stratford-upon-Avon and shared around the world.  Everyone at the RSC - from actors to armourers, musicians to technicians - plays a part in creating the world you see on stage.

In addition to a groundbreaking new production of THE TEMPEST, in 2017 the RSC brings a series of Shakespeare's iconic Roman histories.

THE TEMPEST - Simon Russell Beale returns to the RSC after 20 years to play Prospero. In a unique partnership with Intel, we will be using today's most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare's magical play.

JULIUS CAESAR - Julius Caesar begins the Roman series, with the politics of spin7 and betrayal turning to violence in a race to claim the empire, after the all-conquering Caesar returns from war.

ANTONY & CLEOPATRA - Following Caesar’s assassination and his own rise to power, Mark Anthony chooses a life of decadent seduction with Cleopatra, Queen of Eqypt, where his military brilliance deserts him and his passion leads the lovers to their tragic end.

TITUS ANDRONICUS - The decay of Rome reaches its violent depths in Shakespeare’s bloodiest play. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and leaves Rome in disarray, with rape, cannibalism and brutality filling the moral void at the heart of a corrupt society.
