RSC Titus Andronicus Review Amy Stutz - Nia Gwynne

REVIEW | Titus Andronicus | RSC

Continuing the RSC’s Rome Season, director Blanche McIntyre has approached Shakespeare’s most gruesome and bloodiest play in a highly contemporary way.

However, shortly after the…

REVIEW | Much Ado About Nothing | RSC UK Tour

Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedies that consists of quick-witted dialogue and vivacious characters.
