The Royal Shakespeare Company will travel back to the University of Michigan for an intensive, ten-day creative collaboration. Sixteen British and American actors (along with playwrights, a director, a dramaturg, a voice coach, and a movement coach) will visit Ann Arbor to discuss three plays that the RSC hopes to produce in its 2011 season.
A majority of events are solely for University students, but a few free events will be open to the public. These include:
- A panel discussion about the Bible as literature, featuring director Greg Doran and playwright David Edgar on Saturday, March 27
- A Greg Doran and Anthony Sher lecture about Shakespeare on stage and film on Monday, March 29
- Three partial readings of plays in development, which include student performers on March 24, 26, and 30
