Setting the Stage: the RSC in The Greene Space – Design

7:00 PM

Tom Piper, Andy Hayles, Rab Bennetts, and Noma Dumezweni will talk to host Wendy Goodman about collaborating on the design for the RSC’s newly transformed Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon and how this provided the inspiration behind the specially constructed Scarlet & Gray Stage at the Armory. They’ll also explore design on a thrust stage and how it feels to play in a one-room space, shared with the audience.
