The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) is to stream its upcoming production of Richard II starring former Doctor Who actor David Tennant to UK schools. This is from the BBC…
The sold-out performance of the 13 November Stratford-upon-Avon show will also be shown live in cinemas.
“We want to bring the work we make… to the widest possible audience,” said RSC artistic director Gregory Doran.
“Taking our productions live into cinemas and direct into schools is the next logical step.”
Richard II runs in Stratford from 10 October to 16 November before transferring to the Barbican in London in December.
A recording of the live performance will be streamed direct into up to 1,000 schools on 15 November, accompanied by a live studio link-up hosted by Konnie Huq.
Members of the creative team, including Doran and Tennant, will take part in a live online Q&A as part of the initiative.
